Google just told Amazon to get off their lawn

It seems like Google is targeting Amazon directly with their latest legal agreement.

Section 3.4 of Google’s new terms, which were updated Tuesday, reads, “You agree that you will not take any actions that may cause or result in the fragmentation of Android, including but not limited to distributing, participating in the creation of, or promoting in any way a software development kit derived from the SDK.”

The Kindle is by far the most popular Android device that provides a derived SDK.
