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.

Is the Kindle Fire UK release on the horizon?

Talk of the Kindle Fire UK release has escalated in the last few weeks with rumours abound as to when it will finally hit these shores.

Kindle Fire UK release
On sale in the US since November of last year, the Kindle Fire launch has been somewhat of a mystery in the UK and other territories, despite all the other versions being made available here in good time.

Now, some large electronics retailers have fuelled Kindle Fire UK release speculation by listing Amazon’s tablet as a main contender in the Christmas 2012 favourites, which suggests it could be with us in the next few months.

However, according to various online sources, not only is the Kindle Fire launch imminent, but there is a second version of the tablet in the pipelines which could also be released in time for the festive period.

Of course it is not impossible to get hold of the Fire from the US, which means there are a lucky few here in the UK who already own one. Proporta offers a good Kindle Fire cover range to ensure that they can keep their tablets protected.

While the rest of us wait for its arrival, you can find an extensive Kindle Fire case selection at the Proporta website as well as a range of Kindle covers for the rest of the versions available to us now.
