Mate called and said he'd heard from Amazon that as soon as FIRE ships the KF App store will work. If not a re register will sort it.

'Includes special offers personalised for you and sponsored screensavers.'

So it appears that all Kindle fires will now be ad supported only. Not sure I like that!

Its an extension of what happens on the main site via a PC. View a product and Amazon offers your choices, personal choice books as well.

The official Blurb is:
You'll receive special offers, personalised for you, and sponsored screensavers directly on your Kindle Fire - including offers on items like Kindle accessories or products from our digital catalogue of kindle books, apps, games and MP3, plus many more.

Your offers display on your Kindle's screensaver and on the bottom of the home screen-they don't interrupt you while you're using your Kindle Fire.
