SAN FRANCISCO, February 14, 2019 (Newswire.com) – The emerging leader in the global UEM market, Hexnode MDM recently announced the support for Amazon Fire OS devices. Fire OS which is built on Google’s Android, similar to Android OS except for the support of any Google products or services, is a valuable addition to the MDMs feature set. The Amazon Fire tablets are a lot more affordable than Android tablets even with the same specs.

The primary and obvious difference between Fire OS and Android is the non-support for any Google services. Also, the Amazon app store may not have every app – even some widely used ones. However, the tablets come in different sizes and are child user-friendly. Fire OS is a simplified Android OS minus Google. The devices are an excellent choice for the customers who are on the budget. Despite the absence of Google and Google-relied apps, Amazon has its own set of alternatives for Google apps and features. For customers who can live without Google, Amazon Fire OS devices are the best option available in the market at an affordable price.

An organization-wide deployment of Amazon Fire tablets can be now streamlined with Hexnode MDM. Simple enrollment, app installation, file distribution, device restrictions, network configurations, device lockdown (kiosk), etc. can be done on Fire OS as it is being done on Android devices. Still, to come are many enhancements to the Fire OS management suite in the future updates from Hexnode MDM.
