Amazon Kindle Fire Launch Applications will include Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Angry Birds and many more

Amazon is just few days away from introducing its most awaited low-priced Tablet in the market. As pre-order advances, Kindle Fire will be available for official sale from November 15 at a price of $199 that will cope up with Apple iPad and Andorid Tablets, the leaders in the Tablet commerce so far. Well, Amazon has added a whole new factory of applications and games that will delight users who are thinking of buying it.

Electronic Arts, PopCap, Twitter, Facebook, Netflix and many more renowned brands have come together to bring their Android games and Apps to Kindle Fire on its launch. Below are the Launch apps:

  • Streaming media services: Netflix, Rhapsody and Pandora
  • Social apps: Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn
  • News apps: Bloomberg and Pulse
  • Games: Doodle Jump, Fruit Ninja and some titles from EA, Zynga, Gameloft, PopCap and Rovio Mobile.

All these applications and games will be sold through Amazon’s store on the device itself and with the company promising that it will rise as time goes on, including exclusive free Apps from Market Android for Kindle Fire owners:

“We started talking to app developers everywhere the day we introduced Kindle Fire, and the response has been overwhelming,” says Amazon Kindle vice president Dave Limp in a statement.

“In addition to over 18 million movies, TV shows, songs, books, and magazines from Amazon, we are excited to offer customers thousands of apps and games to choose from on Kindle Fire – from Pandora and Rhapsody to Facebook and Twitter to Netflix, as well as popular games from EA, Zynga and many other top game developers.”

With these efforts, Amazon is surely going to launch Kindle Fire with a bang and refute the criticism faced for previously sold tablets for not having native tablet-optimized Apps. If you are not aware, Amazon will lose $50 for every Kindle Fire sold, but can earn back those $50 (and more) through sales of books, apps, video, and other purchases on Amazon.com.
