Amazon Kindle Fire Only Supports 2.4 GHz WiFi:

The Amazon Kindle Firehadthe potential to be a great WiFi geek tool because of below.

  • Low Price
  • Touch interface
  • 7″ screen size
  • Cloud storage
  • Amazon app store (Android based at this time)
  • Cool WiFi Apps:-)

His verdict:
FCC info indicates that device only supports 2.4 GHz WiFi, rendering is almost useless as a base platform for WiFi tools used by WLAN professionals.

Combine that with this bit of news about the Kindle Touch from Thorin Klosowski

According to a forum posting on Amazon, it looks like the Kindle Touch 3G will not support browsing the web over its 3G network like previous versions of the Kindle.
