When it comes to wallet-friendly tablets, things are seriously heating up around the £100 mark. The £119 Tesco Hudl is said to be doing alright, while Argos is entering the fray with the £99.99 MyTablet.
Easily the biggest name, however, is the Amazon Kindle Fire, and the retailer has made the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD official in the UK, just three weeks after the US launch.
Amazon Kindle Fire HD specs include a 7in display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 (216PPI), a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and dual stereo speakers.
This being the bottom-of-the-range Amazon Kindle Fire, however, don’t expect cameras or 4G compatibility.
There’s also the spanking new “Mojito” Fire OS 3.0, bringing carousel and grid views, Quick Switch for moving between apps, enhanced email, printing support, and “hundreds” of other features.
You’ll be able to get your hands on the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD from October 24, starting at £119 with 8GB storage, and you can of course pre-order now.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX (7in) follows on November 13, starting at £199 for the 16GB model, and completing the trio is the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 from £329, the latter arriving on November 19.
