You're right Amazon's app store looks very limited compared to Google play store.
You do get the "app not available on this device" messages from Google play store sometimes but most of the applications seem to install fine. For those unavailable apps you can always install manually.

I would root it and install Google play store. Also disable future Amazon updates so that you don't loose your root privileges in the future. It makes the tablet so much better with Google play store available.
Also the tablet is more fun to use with the special offers taken off the lock screen.

Yeah I saw the fine print, but here is the tweet:
"Tweet #ConfirmKindleFireHD w/in 15 min to buy - $149.99 incl tax w/synced Card. QtyLtd Terms: http://amex.co/W4XqIb"
They are pretty good at correcting their mistakes if you are charged tax. Just have to call them. Yes the T&C shows + tax, but it is a generalization given that people in normally taxed states are not being charged tax. . .the T&C is also in direct contrast to the offer or "sales sticker" if you will. I'm sure they would rather eat the $10ish for the few that are charged tax AND call them on it than take a bunch of opened kindles back from pissed off customers (who would be right to return it with the change in offer)

the offer fine print is actually as follows:
Purchase a Kindle Fire HD, 16GB, 7" for $149.99 plus tax by 3/3/2013.
The $149.99 promotional price does not actually include the tax if tax is required by the state.

California charges tax on everything shipped to California, yes. . .
But the offer tweet you get back from AMEX (for the fireHD) says "$149.99 including tax" so I don't think it matters where you live, they are including the tax in the price (for me it would be $140ish plus $9.xx in change) so really it's better than $150 flat deal, as your state will get some tax dollars.
