Amazon releases Kindle Fire source codeA lot of exciting things are happening for the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet this week. Firstly, the tablet was shipped ahead of schedule, then we had news about the apps being sideloaded onto it, and of course it also got the root treatment. Now, we’ve got even more good news about the tablet – Amazon has just released the source code for the Kindle Fire as well. Quite an admirable move by them, when you take into consideration that a lot of OEMs that have yet to release the source codes for all their Android devices.

While the release of the tablet’s source code won’t mean much to regular folks, this means that developers can start working on custom ROMs for the tablet. Folks who aren’t happy with the Kindle Fire tablet UI will be able to replace it in the future. I wouldn’t be surprised if CyanogenMod pays the Kindle Fire a visit too. It sure looks like Amazon is taking the steps to get their debut tablet right by pleasing both regular consumers and the developer community. What do you think of the Kindle Fire so far?
