The wireless Bluetooth controller features a gaggle of controls, including both shoulder buttons and triggers, in addition to media playback transport controls. Additionally, the central radioactive-looking button taps into Amazon’s GameCircle - perhaps to evolve beyond merely a gaming app hub and into something more full featured akin to Apple’s Game Center or Xbox Live.
That is LITERALLY the devkit controller. If you think this looks visually bad, you should see the devkit.
And whoever took those images apparently didn't notice the "barcodes". Nice job announcing who you are to Amazon, guys.
EDIT: I should clarify that I know this because I've held one. I won't tell whose, but it's okay-ish comfortable. Handles are a bit small.
