Amazon Launches Fire OS Preview Based on Android 5.0 "Lollipop"

If you're an Android developer, you'll be interested to hear that Amazon released a preview edition of Fire OS built on Lollipop. Fire HD tablet owners should take note that the new OS will be released later this year.

This effort is a bit of catch up for Amazon, given that Google made Android 5.0 available last year. The company also introduced Android M last month, so by the time Amazon's Fire OS gains compatibility with Lollipop, it will again be a full Android release behind.
