Yes, it supports Android apps. As far as the rumors suggest, it is based on Android 2.1, so you may have lesser app support. Also, Amazon doesn't promote any of the Google services at all. It is completely different than Android and doesn't offer you to use the Android Market directly.

Kindle Fire is more of a multimedia device built as a tablet around the idea of an ebook reader.

Personally, I'd suggest you go for the new Kindle Touch (WiFi) only for $109. Kindle Fire isn't even available for India yet, and will most probably be priced under $220.

Kindle Touch may support office documents though I'm not entirely sure. Google's your friend :)

What kind of services are you talking about? Amazon store, Kindle ebooks or the new Silk browser.

You can still buy downloadable products from amazon, and also some of the products can be imported to India with an extra cost. The Kindle store is available everywhere. Although I doubt if Kindle Fire support will exist in India because of the new Silk browser.

Anyway, if you want a tablet, you may want to go for Samsung galaxy tab 7".
