    Will 1st Gen KF Owners be forgotten?

    Will new updates to the KF only be for the new versions? It seems the new release of any OS updates will only apply to the 2nd gen devices

    The firmware of the first is based on gingerbread, the second being ice cream sandwich so I'd say updates will be few and far between . I haven't gotten one in a while anyway and mines pretty bug free as is already. If memory serves the only addition in an update was parental controls, the rest were bug fixes and tweaks of existing features.
    Funny, my Fire is the least Android looking in my fleet but it's also the most problem free. Just goes to show, imo, that a ui can be written over to of vanilla and work correctly. Samsung, Moto, Verizon, etc should be taking notes instead of pointing fingers.
