Will the Fire be running Android OS? If so, I'm assuming you can get droid apps on the fire? My main concern would be that I could run my netflix app on the fire for my kids. I'm having a hard time discerning between all the tablets out there and one of my top requirements is that I can at the very least watch netflix on it and even better would be hulu and hulu+. Any advice/help is greatly appreciated!

Only apps from the Amazon appstore are supported. Netflix is not one of them, yet, but Amazon has said that they are working with Netflix to get one.

As far as I understand, Fire runs a private Amazon's fork of not quite recent version of Android.

It's forked version of android 2.3.4.

I wonder if they'll update it in the future? I don't like the idea of not running the newest Os.

Anything but Ice Cream Sandwich is horrible. I hope they update the OS.
