Why Can’t You Add The Google Play App Store To Kindle Fire HD – Makes No Sense

SEE ALSO:  The New Kindle Fire HD — Only $199

One thing that frustrates me more than anything is why Amazon doesn’t allow Google Play – Google’s Android app store – to be installed on the Kindle Fire HD.  Certainly, Kindle Fire HD’s have been flying off the shelves over at Amazon.  And with the holiday season, this trend will continue is overly aggressive fashion.

But outright preventing the installation of Google Play onto the Kindle Fire HD?  Really?

This is not only frustrating to so many unsuspecting Kindle Fire HD buyers, but also a bit perplexing as to why Amazon would do this!

I know, I know… Amazon is ultimately forcing everyone onto their store via the Amazon App Store.

So now, the only way people are installing Google Play onto the Kindle Fire HD tablets is by simply rooting the device.  But of course, once you root your Kindle Fire HD you immediately discredit the warranty associated with it.

I would have thought Amazon would want to do whatever they can to encourage more people to buy their Kindle Fire HD tablets.  But by not allowing the Google Play store to be installed is creating more of a backlash than anything else.

Sure, you can get apps from Amazon’s app store, but it’s nothing like having the lineup of apps you get from Google Play.

What do you think about this?  Do you find it frustrating that Amazon is not allowing easy, or pre installed, access to Google Play on their Kindle Fire HD’s?
