Amazon made a lame decision to build the kindle fire with an android 2.2 tablet and not working with the android Honeycomb class codebase, which are typically 3.2 version. The device has a limited amount of memory as well (8GB) and not 16GB or 32GB which is standard with the honeycomb tablets. the User Interface also looks like it was borrowed from Barnes and Noble’s Nook Color device, also a android 2.2 device. One wonders what manufacturer is building these devices for them. When the honeycomb devices started to come out, Google clamped down on the rights to the code base so only well established manufacturers could get the honeycomb code base.
