Comment Don't trust Amazon to bring apps to Canada. (Score 1) 80

I live in Canada and have an Android phone and a Kindle 3. I would strongly discourage Canadians from buying a Kindle Fire. The reason is Amazon's horrible support for Apps in Canada. The Kindle has had games in the US for years, but none of them are available on the Kindle in Canada. They've also had an Android app store for a long time now with some great exclusives (Plants vs Zombies) and free games... also not available in Canada. I do not trust them to be able to bring a robust app store to the Canadian market. They've shown no capability/interest in doing so up until now. Instead, I plan to install the Kindle app on my Kobo Vox as soon as it arrives.
