Fire £129, Fire HD £159, lovely
Amazon’s new tablets on their way to Blighty, with pretty nice price tags in tow.
The revamped Kindle fire will sell for £129, which sounds like a fair amount of her Majesty’s currency. However, the much more interesting Fire HD 16GB will go for £159, which puts it toe to toe with Google’s 8GB Nexus 7.
It seems like an interesting alternative for content junkies, as the Fire HD will offer quite a few perks and access to Amazon’s content services and 16GB of storage, while the Nexus offers a clean version of Android 4.1 and a faster processor, with less storage.
Both tablets should start shipping in the UK on October 25. No word on the 8.9-inch version yet.
