The Plex dev team has been on a roll in recent months, releasing implementations for iOS and Android as well as Windows PCs. Plex has also seen some significant support from third-party developers, who have built additional clients for mobile platforms as well as connected devices like Samsung’s app-enabled TVs and Blu-ray players.
Being on the Kindle Fire could definitely help Plex to extend its footprint, but its also good news for Amazon: The Kindle Fire seems to be the first serious competitor to Apple’s iPad. Adding easy media sharing options to the device could help to underscore that it’s not just a glorified e-reader, but actually a pretty capable video consumption device as well.
