The Fire is an Android tablet. So yes it does use Android apps. Now it will not have access to the full Android Market.

You should be able to use most of the apps on the Amazon Android appstore.

You will NOT be able to use all Android Apps. Only the Android Apps that Amazon chooses.

This we do not know for sure. I have been able to download Android apps from other places and use them on my generic Android Tablet that I have.

Can I run "Square" credit card transactions with my Kindle Fire?

No, if you look on Square's website, they say that they don't support the Fire yet.

Thanks, I did look on Square's website, but their answer wasn't exactly definitive. I can only hope that Amazon "gets it" and brings this service to the Fire.
