As you might know that Amazon has just released the Kindle Fire a cheap Android based tablet a few days back. Main selling point for the Kindle Fire is of course its price-point as its available for $199 and includes all the essential features of an Android tablet, although the 7-inch screen size might be too small for some peoples liking to consider it. Sales for the Kindle Fire also seems to be going pretty strong at least as compared to many other Android based tablets. No wonder its the first note worthy and cheap Android tablet option since the Nook Color was released by B&N. Today, I spotted an interesting article on PC Mag which states that its not very difficult actually to run the Android Apps on the Kindle Fire if you get hang of the procedure.
Briefly speaking what you need to do is to copy/download all the apk files that you want to install on the Kindle Fire and then hook up your Kindle Fire device using the USB cable to the PC. Copy all the APK files to the SDcard and disconnect the device from PC and on the Kindle Fire install an application called Easy Installer from the Amazon App store. Launch it through the interface install the desired Apps on your device. Now these apps will appear in Kindle Fire’s App bookshelf! Easy Installer is actually a tool that installs apps from apk files on SD card. It will list all the apk files on the SD card, and you can select apps that want to install, and click "Install Selected Apps" button to install them. Also notice that not all Android apps will work as there may be some that will not be compatible but it appears that most of the apps and games work without any issues!
Have a look at the article if you want to transfer the apps from your Android smartphone to the Kindle Fire. Procedure is pretty easy to follow. make sure that you download the apk files only from the trusted sources, just to make sure that they don’t contain any malware as Android platform seems pretty vulnerable to the malware these days. Also have a look at the article that compares the Kindle Fire with the Apple iPad2.
