We're excited to share that when Kindle Fire customers across the country start opening their boxes next week, they will be able to choose from several thousand of the most popular Android apps and games, including Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora, Twitter, Comics by comiXology, The Weather Channel and popular games from Zynga, EA, Gameloft, PopCap and Rovio. In addition to these new apps, customers will also be able to access Amazon's incredible selection of 18 million movies, TV shows, music, books, magazines, and more.

Kindle Fire customers will be able to download these apps and games without the hassle of having to register multiple times with multiple providers. Instead, with just a few taps, Kindle Fire owners can download these apps and games using the Amazon account their device is registered to and with the convenience of Amazon's simple and secure 1-Click payments technology. All apps are Amazon-tested on Kindle Fire for the best experience possible, and once downloaded, can be accessed directly from Kindle Fire and other Android-based devices.

With the Netflix app, Kindle Fire customers who are Netflix members can browse and instantly watch unlimited TV shows and movies and resume watching where they left off on their TV or computer. Additional examples of apps and games that will be available to Kindle Fire customers include Allrecipes, Bloomberg, Cut the Rope, Doodle Fit, Doodle Jump, Fruit Ninja, Jenga, LinkedIn, Zillow, Airport Mania, Battleheart, Pulse, The Cat in the Hat, Quickoffice Pro, Jamie's 20-Minute Meals, IMDb Movies & TV, and Monkey Preschool Lunchbox.

Customers in the U.S. can pre-order Kindle Fire at http://www.amazon.com/kindlefire, which starts shipping on November 15.

What about Angry Birds? All app stores and tablets must run Angry Birds -- it's the law :)

Does anyone know if the Zinio app will be available on the Kindle Fire?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2011 9:36:57 PM PST
Doubtful on Zinio as Amazon will be selling magazine subscriptions as on the Kindle - improved for color, audio and video when available. Zinio would be nice for single issue purchases.

This is awesome! Initially, the only problem I had with pre-ordering the Kindle was due to many missing apps. However, I still went with it because I have been using Amazon since 04 and never once have they disappointed me. I put faith in the company and I knew they would eventually get everything right with the Kindle. Bringing Netflix and other big name apps is a huge start and further shows Amazon's commitment to satisfy users. While many thought that Amazon would never bring Netflix onto the Fire as it coincides with their own video streaming service, I'm now hoping they would bring over Hulu as well!
