Amazon has announced a couple of important details for fans of its Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch tablet. While the tablet has finally launched in Europe and Japan, buyers in the US can now purchase the tablet at a lower price. Originally, the tablet sold for $299 with Wi-Fi only.
The new price for the Wi-Fi only tablet with 16 GB of storage and special offers is $269, a price cut of $30. If you don’t want to deal with advertisements, the tablet will now cost you $284. The 32GB version is going for $299 with offers, and $314 without. This also marks the first time that tablet fans in Japan, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain have been able to purchase the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD.
US customers will also now be able to buy the tablet featuring 4G connectivity starting at $399. That is about $100 cheaper than the tablet was a couple weeks ago. The hardware inside the tablet remains the same, only the price has changed.
