Analysis: What Kindle Fire Means For Game Developers

Gamasutra: In terms of features, the Kindle Fire may pale in comparison to the more expensive iPad 2 and its gigantic library of games, or larger-screened, more expensive full Android devices. Is the Kindle Fire a sure bet for game developers? Nothing is -- just look at the Nook Color, another cheaper-than-an-iPad Android-based e-reader, and its lacking game offerings. But the power of Amazon's publicity, low price and possibly large installed base could beckon game developers to test out Kindle Fire's clear blue waters down the line.

Cheaper than most android tablets but from looking at the specs...meh. It really doesn't mean anything or not that much all for game developers.
