UDID (or something similar)?

Is there any way to get a unique device identifier of some sort on the Kindle Fire?

You can check the Serial Number (DSN) manually of your Kindle Fire under the "Device" option under Kindle Fire Settings.

Here is a good post on the Android Developer's site that discusses how to identify app installations: http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2011/03/identifying-app-installations.html I'll see if I can find the actual source of the Kindle Device Serial Number.

Any luck in terms of a programatic way of identifying the device between apps?

the standard android field: android.os.Build.SERIAL will give the same value as the Serial Number displayed in the Kindle Fire devices.
