Amazon Kindle Fire To Hit UK Shelves End Of January?
We have heard rumours that the UK arrival of the Amazon Kindle Fire will be some time soon, with varying release dates ranging from the end of January right up to March being tipped as the correct release schedule.
We have already done a review of the Amazon Kindle Fire, and found that the device certainly had its plus points.
One of which was the obvious price level that it was being sold at, coupled with access to a huge Amazon owned eco-system and their own version of Android running the tablet.
It seems like a great alternative to more costly versions of tablets running the Android O/S, and obviously Apples own premium priced iPad 2.
Amazon sell millions of Kindle Fires over Xmas:
With Amazon selling upwards of five million units so far, it will be interesting to see if the same success is replicated in the UK.
This will likely come down in many ways to what price level they decide to sell the tablet at.
On the amazing sales so far of the Kindle Fire, Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO and co-founder states:
“We are grateful to our customers worldwide for making this the best holiday ever for Kindle,”
Amazon Kindle Fire or iPad 3?
Of course this is an unfair comparison in many ways, but just ask yourself the question:
If you were given the choice of waiting for the arrival of the next iPad 3 release, or probably waiting a shorter period of time and saving yourself a couple of hundred pounds in the process on top, which would you choose?
That is assuming that there is only one version of the new iPad being launched. As we hear there is a strong chance that two variations of the next iPad will be offered, with one cut-price version attempting to compete with the likes of the Amazon Kindle Fire which will undoubtedly be eating away at Apples bottom line now that it is fully unleashed.
