Amazon.com today introduced Fire OS 3.0 “Mojito,” the next generation of
software and services that powers the best-selling Kindle Fire tablets,
with hundreds of updates and exclusive new features to give customers a
simple OS experience with Android app compatibility. Fire OS starts with
Android and adds:
Fire OS 3.0 is available exclusively on the all-new Kindle Fire HD and
Kindle Fire HDX—read a separate press release at: www.amazon.com/kindle-pr.
“Fire OS includes the core email and productivity apps, but we take a
different approach when it comes to content,” said Dave Limp, Vice
President, Amazon Kindle. “Our content-first approach shapes the design
of Fire OS—the home screen makes the most recent content items available
instantly on the Carousel or Grid and customers can move between their
media libraries both on the device and in the cloud with a simple tap.
We’ve also deeply integrated Amazon services directly into Mojito, such
as the Mayday button, Second Screen, X-Ray for Movies & TV shows, and
now X-Ray for Music.”
“Fire OS lets developers offer their Android apps on Kindle Fire with
little to no work,” said Mike George, Vice President, Amazon Appstore.
“Developers can integrate services like Whispersync for Games,
GameCircle, In-App Purchasing, and Amazon’s Mobile Associates into their
apps to take advantage of the Amazon Appstore’s increased monetization
and customer engagement.”
