I figured out a workaround.

So... the ROS android app is expecting the "enter" key to be pressed, but for some reason the Fire doesn't realize that and isn't showing the enter key.

However, you can use the android debugger (or a terminal application) to simulate keypresses on android. See here: Simulating Keypresses on Android

You need to use the input command to send code 66 (enter).

On your laptop type this after you have entered the ip address of the robot.

$ adb shell input 66

A more permanent solution would be adding an "ok" button to the dialog
