Amazon Silk for second generation Kindle Fire

Hi guys, I have two question to Amazon guys: 1- Are you planning on a Silk emulator? At least to include Silk inside the SDK so web developers can tests webapps? 2- Is the new Silk browser going to be available to Kindle Fire first edition users as an update? Thanks Max Firtman www.mobilehtml5.org www.firt.mobi

Hi Max -- We generally do not answer questions about future products or services, which this falls under. However, I'm going to move this thread under the Suggestions forum so it will be counted as a "vote for" such a capability. Thanks.

Steve, Thanks for your answer. The first question is not for future productos, as Amazon Silk already exists on current Kindle Fire ;) As you know, Silk is not the same browser as we used to on same Android version. Therefore, web developers need to test websites on your platform and there is no way to do that right now. Usually, testing them before the product is on the street is a good idea to support web developers ;) In my case, I maintain www.mobilehtml5.org website; I'd like to add next version of Silk there that's why I'm asking. Same for second edition of my book "Programming the Mobile Web" by O'Reilly that is going published in next months. Thanks

Thanks, Max Firtman, for the www.mobilehtml5.org website -- it is a terrific reference! So it would be great if Amazon could provide the information you need for the Silk browser to keep it up. We are starting to move some of our development to HTML5, and figuring out what features we can use across specific platforms is really important.

At this moment, Kindle Tablet emulators do not include the Silk browser. Please keep up with our blog for any updates on this. http://www.amazonappstoredev.com/
