How much is this going to cost?
Stage 1: Definition
1. Feature overview
Right now, the only distribution points for Firefox Mobile are the Mozilla download servers, Google Play, and Getjar "although I'm unsure if the last one is official or not." These can't reach a large number of Android devices. For example, play won't normally work on Kindle or Nook devices. The idea behind this feature is to allow Firefox to be downloaded from additional distribution points. This is important because there are many users who use devices that don't have Getjar or Play and would prefer not to, or are unable to, get apps from a third party, and these users should be able to use Firefox.
The goal distribution points are "as of 9/21/2012": Amazon Appstore, Nook App Store "although it's not feasible to support all devices on this one", and Getjar "if the current version is not official / doesn't include the tablet UX".
2. Users & use cases
The target users are users who have access to these distribution points, but not Google Play, or have some problem with downloading it directly from the Mozilla Servers.

We're not trying to support every Android App store in existence, but just to add an incremental improvement.
