The Amazon Kindle Fire was launched last month in the US. It’s the first tablet to come out of the well known retailer, and the first tablet to fork Android in a very obvious way. The Kindle Fire has been selling very well in the US, so naturally the question regarding its availability elsewhere has been raised countless times in the minds of tech geeks everywhere.
It’s still unclear if the Kindle Fire will ever be out anywhere else, but at least the UK seems to be getting it pretty quick. According to Know Your Mobile, the Amazon Kindle Fire will be available in the UK in January. The information allegedly comes from “a source close to the launch”.
And that’s it. Unfortunately no pricing information has been leaked, or even an actual release date. It was pretty obvious that the Kindle Fire wouldn’t make it to the UK this year anyway (or else Amazon would have already released it, in order to cash in on some of that holiday spending frenzy), so this is hardly a surprise.
If it does arrive in the UK, perhaps the Kindle Fire may also travel to the other countries where Amazon has a big presence (read: a country-specific domain name). We’ll let you know as soon as we can.
If you’re in the US and want a Kindle Fire, you can head over to Amazon to pick one up.
