Re: Will the Kindle Fire have Google Maps, or an alternative?
Well if your need is simply accessing Google Maps over wifi w/o the GPS, then the Kindle Fire will almost certainly work for that. It likely won't have the Google Maps app*, but you could access them on the browser.

Sounds like they are vetting all apps on the Amazon App Store for compatibility with the Kindle Fire. Maybe I am misreading it though.
*Edit: may be possible to get the Google Maps app on it via sideloading or some other method.
