November 29, 2011 — San Jose, CA — Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in cross-device computing, today announced that Splashtop Remote Desktop is available for the Kindle Fire. Splashtop Remote Desktop enhances the capabilities of the Kindle Fire to make it more than an eReader or way to consume content.
