Amazon’s Kindle Fire announcement – the lowdown

A brand new range of Kindle Fire models have been announced by Amazon at a press event held in California, USA yesterday.

The rest of the world has had to wait almost a year for the Kindle Fire to cross the oceans, and now we’re spoilt for choice with two versions of the Amazon tablet being released in the coming weeks.

Just in time for the Christmas rush and beating Microsoft in the tablet race, the new Kindle Fire HD range will surely give the Google Nexus 7 a run for its money.

If you were confused by the announcement, you can be forgiven as different versions, prices and capabilities can put your head into a bit of a spin. Thankfully, we haven’t let that Friday feeling get the better of us (yet) and have put together everything you need to know about the Kindle Fire HD range so you can make an informed decision on your new tablet of choice.
