I came across this article earlier today and I'm somewhat confused as to what the implications of this may be:
If Amazon does decide to rework the Android OS to benefit them, how significant could the changes be? Will Google Apps still be able to run on Amazon devices and vice versa? Could Amazon keep the two from being compatible with each other if it wanted to? Would all the app programming still be done in java with the android sdk like it is now or could Amazon branch off with it's own SDK? How different could something like that become?
I'm trying to figure out what the implications of this could be. It sounds like they want to make the Android OS App experience more like the iPad and iPhone, in which case what do you predict they will do?
