BREAKING NEWS:

Kindle Fire 8.9″ Gets Price Drop in U.S., Expands to Japan, Europe

(TS) – Amazon just announced that it would be dropping the price of the 8.9-inch version of its Kindle Fire HD. The tablet will now cost $269 for the Wi-Fi only version and $399 for the Wi-Fi and LTE version. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ is now available in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan as well. Canada won’t get the device this time around.

The Kindle Fire HD was already available in Europe, but only the 7-inch version. With today’s news, Android tablets will become more widely available and could represent a bigger market share in Europe and Japan.

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 features a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a T OMAP 4470 dual-core processor, and PowerVR SGX 544 graphics. Even at $299 and up, it was already one of the most powerful tablets in its price range.

Now that the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 starts at $269, it’s the same price as the Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ which has similar specs, but which comes with the Barnes & Noble NOOK store for books and apps. The Kindle tablets, obviously, ship with Amazon’s digital content stores for music, books, movies, and apps.

What they don’t include is access to the Google Play Store, which has hundreds of thousands of free and paid apps, many of which aren’t available from Amazon’s app store. If you really want to turn the Kindle Fire HD into a full-fledged Android tablet though, there’s a hack for that.
