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.
