Re: Amazon Prime instant video
Over a year now since this thread started and Amazon hasn't offered to provide an app for Android OS devices aside from the Kindle. I emailed them to address this and would encourage you to do the same. It doesn't take that long and they are not going to change their policy unless you make a little noise. I didn't bother to ask them to explain their police because I already know why they don't support Android. If you buy a Tablet, they want you to make sure its theirs and not someone else's. Anyway, here's their reply......

Comments:I understand Amazon does not support Android OS devices for Amazon Instant Video aside from Kindle Fire. This is disappointing for me and others in my position. I chose a standard Kindle over a Kindle Fire because its much easier to read outdoors and its much lighter. For a tablet and phone I chose the Android non-Kindle platform. I understand Mr. Bezos' attempt to force consumers toward the Kindle Fire by withholding Instant Video Support from devices that Amazon doesn't' directly profit from, however I purchased and annually renew my Prime membership. I like Android OS. I don't care for Apple. I would like to choose what platform best suits my needs and I would love it if Amazon would play a bit more nicely with Google Play and authorize an Instant Video App for Android Devices. While I fully expect this note will go into the Amazon executive trash bin, would you kindly relay my concerns to Jeff Bezos so that I dont feel completely worthless writing it?
