Will the missing "Google Experience" on Amazon's Android tablet extinguish the Fire?

The Social Times' +Frank McPherson disagreed with my recent column, in which I argued that Google was being made a sucker out of Amazon because that company is using Google's own Android OS to smother the Android tablet market while simultaneously competing directly with Google on many strategic businesses.

Frank's argument is that Android's lack of Google apps means the Kindle Fire doesn't have the "Google Experience," which is so appealing that its absence, he implies but does not say, will eventually limit the Fire's success.
