Amazon Kindle Fire: First look

Key features of Amazon's would-be iPad "killer"

Android with an Amazon twist. Yes, the Kindle Fire is an Android-based device but Amazon has put its own unique stamp on it by primarily featuring its own applications and services over Google's. In addition to all the aforementioned cloud features, Amazon is also using its own Android store instead of the standard version. The only main difference is that Amazon tests out and approves each app it allows onto the store, so while you may not have access to every Android app around, there's also a much smaller chance of getting nailed with malware.
