    installed a very nice ICS 4.0 ROM and now the 'about tablet' section of settings thinks my device is a Galaxy Nexus 7. nothing wrong with that but it even sent me an email from the 'android team' welcoming me to my new Nexus. thought that was kinda funny, but I do wonder if the hardware is that similar since it appears this is a port from a Nexus to be reporting that in my build.prop file and sending me emails about it

    Developers change the device name so that were able to see more apps in the store. For some reason the store limits kindle fire on apps that do work on it. Pretty cool you got an email though, not sure if i ever got one haha.
