Amazon release the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in the UK

Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD is now available in the UK (plus Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan). The Kindle Fire HD has been on sale for a while in the US and it’s finally come to the UK. The 16GB costs £229 and the 32GB version costs £259. If you’re invested in the Amazon ecosystem and looking for a tablet then this may be a good option. Personally I prefer standard Android like the Nexus 7 and 10 tablets.
