Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablets now available in India

Amazon Kindle Fire HD

Running on a custom version of Android operating system, Kindle Fire HD tablets come with Amazon Appstore for the users’ app requirement as there is no Google Play or Google apps accessible.

Other features of the tablets include dual-core processor, Wi-Fi connectivity, 16/ 32GB of internal storage, front HD camera and 1GB of RAM. Amazon also allows users to connect their tablets to their Amazon account at the time of ordering, so when the tablet is delivered, it is ready to be used out of the box, containing all the eBook purchases of the user and even the app downloads sent from the Appstore website to the device.

To remind you, here are the prices of Kindle Fire HD tablets in India:

  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD 16GB version: INR 15,999
  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD 32GB version: INR 18,999
  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 16GB version: INR 21,999
  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 32GB version: INR 25,999

The retail giant has carefully kept the pricing of its Kindle Fire HD tablet in line with Nexus 7 in the country but with the comparably less grown Amazon content ecosystem in India; Nexus 7 still wins over the former. On the other hand, there is no direct competitor to Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in the country, which should give Amazon some advantage.

It is important to note here that Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet is also available via over one hundred retail outlets across India including Croma, Reliance Digital, E-Zone and Vijay Sales stores located in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Pune.
