Next week is going to be a busy one. Apple is set to change the world once again with the iPad Mini on the 26th and European readers, at least most of them based major European Union markets will get a chance to buy the Amazon Kindle HD tablet as of 25th.
On October 28th Google will show its new Nexus phone, or a few of them, and possibly a 32GB version of highly successful Nexus 7 tablet. It won’t be an easy task for Amazon to enter the tablet market with Kindle Fire HD.
Amazon.de has been saying for a while that it starts shipping preordered Kindle Fire HD for €199 for 16GB with ads and €249 for 32GB 7 inch tablet with ads. Since Amazon has learned that some people might have problems annoying Kindle Fire HD ads, they have agreed to offer this interesting tablet without ad support. Kindle Fire HD 16GB shout ads will sell for €214 (VAT included) while the 16GB version will sell for exactly €14 more of €264.
Customers in the United Kingdom can order the Kindle Fire HD 16GB for £159 with ads and £169 without ads, while the 32GB version sells for £199 with ads and £209 without them. The UK preorder link is here while the German Amazon link is here.
French Amazon shares the same pricing, €199 with ads and €214 without them. We still feel a bit disgusted by Amazon’s decision to ship this tablet without a charger wanting additional €9.99 (discounted from previous €19.99).
