Amazon’s Kindle Fire May Land In The UK By January 2012Written by John Thompson on December 8, 2011 · Filed under Tech
Are you still getting over the immense disappointment of not being able to ask Father Christmas for a Kindle Fire this month? Unfortunately that’s not going to change before the year is out, but you may well be able to get hold of one as early as next month if reports from Know Your Mobile are to be believed.
Unfortunately, Know Your Mobile’s source didn’t divulge any information regarding pricing or even a precise release date, but considering how well Amazon’s aggressive pricing strategy has worked in the US since the release of the Fire on the other side of the pond, you can bet that it will be priced significantly lower than the iPad to attract consumers away from the world of Apple.
In order for the Fire to be a viable choice for consumers in the UK, Amazon will have to ensure that there is enough digital content available on the device, which would indicate that the company is also ready to launch its video on demand service in the UK, maybe through the recently acquired LoveFilm.
As we get any more news regarding the Kindle Fire’s availability in the UK, we’ll be sure to bring it to you, so keep a keen eye out!
