Amazon this morning's offered up a list of apps that will be available on the Kindle Fire tablet when it launches next week. And among the usual suspects -- Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, etc. -- is a pretty big one name: Netflix. Not that Netflix isn't on just about every other Android device at this point, but it's a fairly big deal here because it marries Amazon's already excellent movie streaming service with Netflix.
We're not quite ready to announce the Kindle Fire as King of the Winter Carnival just yet -- the recently announced Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet does have some serious specs of its own, and we'll have to see how much of a differentiator Amazon's services really are. (They certainly won't be a negative, of course.)
In addition to the apps we've mentioned above, you can also look for Rhapsody, Comics by comiXology, The Weather Channel, games from Zynga, EA, Gameloft, PopCap and Rovio -- and everything else that's already in the Amazon Appstore.
