    I tried connecting to my Amazon account to watch a video series I purchased. It works great on my laptop, but I cannot get it to work on my RAZR MAXX.

    Any help? What might I be doing wrong?

    Probably because Flash isn't officially support anymore, going to make it difficult to play videos that require it.

    Is there a problem in loading flash? Is it difficult? Does it create weaknesses?

    Thank you.

    I just looked at Play Store and it shows as "incompatible". For the Razr Maxx.

    There isn't an Amazon Instant Video for mobile devices. There is one for Google-TV. I still don't understand why the iPad and Kindle have Instant Video apps but not other Android devices.

    I wonder why apple and not android? Are they sticking it to regular android users while pushing their kindle version of android?

    I was stuck waiting in a parking lot (without my laptop) and wanted to watch The Hobbit--no solution. STINK!

    I have an Amazon Prime account, would be nice to utilize it on my Xoom tab or Razr Maxx phone. I suppose since the Kindle uses a custom Android software, they will not offer once to the open Android users? I am still lost on why this is.....

    PC,

    Can you a brief review of how well this works? Pluses and minuses?

    I am frustrated that Amazon is doing it this way. I have many movies, etc. that I simply cannot access. If they cannot or will not learn how to play nice with others, I will need to find an alternative that will work for all platforms.

    Thank you.
