Kindle Fire HD, a stunning new version of the Kindle, will be available from 25 October. It’s bursting with top of the range features and state of the art tech, and you’ll be able to stream LOVEFiLM Instant movies & TV shows on it too, so we’re obviously very excited.
You can pre-order your Kindle Fire HD now… at Amazon.co.uk, and it’ll cost £159.
It’s a beautiful device, boasting a customised 7” HD display, lightning-fast Wi-Fi and Dolby audio. Plenty of stamina in the battery too, with 11 hours life between charges, but it’s still a lithe, trim number – only 395 grams and 1cm thick.
It’s got girth in the storage department though, which is handy when you’re downloading in HD – 16 GB as standard and, if that’s not enough, there’s a 32 Gb option as well.
No downloading required to watch LOVEFiLM Instant titles, of course – if you’re already a member, you’ll be able to link your account and stream titles at no extra cost.
And if you’ve never tried the LOVEFiLM service, a one month free trial comes as part and parcel of buying a Kindle Fire HD, so you can explore thousands of Instant films & TV episodes on your shiny new piece of wonderment.
By the way, as well as reducing glare and delivering great colour and resolution, the display is made of ‘Gorilla Glass’, which sounds brilliant to us and cheers you up just by saying it.
The Kindle Fire standard (an Amazon best-seller in the US) is also being released in the UK for the first time, spruced up with a faster processor, twice the memory, longer battery life, and — perhaps best of all — a nice low price of £129.
Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos said: “Not only does Kindle Fire HD feature the most-advanced hardware, it’s also a service.
“When combined with our enormous content ecosystem, unmatched cross-platform interoperability, and standard-setting customer service, we hope people will agree that Kindle Fire HD is the best 7” tablet available anywhere, at any price.”
