Mums the word on the reasoning behind this decision, but we are sure it’s going to disappoint the thousands who were hoping to pick up a Kindle Fire or Kindle Touch in the UK. A spokesperson for Amazon.uk told pocket-lint: “Today, Kindle Fire and Kindle Touch are available only in the US,”
The dual core Kindle Fire was officially announced last Wednesday at a press event in New York City. While it’s running Android it’s still a far cry from the Android we’re used to. Instead it runs a customized user interface on top.
The Kindle Fire is the ultimate content tool with access to the Kindle Market, Amazon Android Apps Market, audio and video and much more.
It’s too bad though that at least for now the UK isn’t getting it.
