Amazon collaborates with Google for the new Kindle Fire Amazon is going ballistic, as the company unveiled a number of devices in their bid to dethrone other tablets out of their lofty perch.

The company did not only reveal new members of their Kindle Fire line. In fact, Amazon was able to unveil new sets of devices that the company hopes they could make a major breakthrough in the tech world.

Focusing on their new Kindle Fire models: the 7 inch, 8.9 inch and 4G LTE version Kindle Fire, the company has teamed up with Google to help power their new tablets.

A spokesperson from the company confirmed that these devices will be running on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Android 4.1 Jellybean fans may be saddened by these news, but Ice Cream Sandwich isn’t that bad at all. Though there is still no use yet as to updating the devices OS, at least these new Kindle Fire tablets now run on Android. And that is the good news.

As for the Kindle Paperwhite, it is still unclear whether it’s going to run on Android. Hopefully, Amazon will release a statement regarding on the operating system of the latter.

Is this a great move by Amazon to team up with Google?

  1. The title is a bit misleading. Haha. I follow the whole amazon vs google thing. If anything, the last thing amazon would do is team up with google. The kindle devices have no google apps installed. Although it uses android, it uses a heavily modified fork of android ics, with as little influence of google as possible. 🙂
