Thinking already of what to buy your loved one(s) for Christmas? After all, we are almost halfway there!
If so, Amazon may have the gadget for you - it's popular Kindle Fire is spawning a successor - the Kindle Fire 2 - and has reportedly been pegged for a release later this year.
However, if you want to get your mitts on one, you may have to do the less cost-effective journey across the Atlantic as it is unlikely to arrive here until next year. We don't know that for a fact, but are basing that on the knowledge that the original Kindle Fire hasn't even turned up in Blighty yet - despite being out in the US for some time now.
According to Reuters, Amazon wants to get the 8.9-inch baby out of its warehouses and into customers' letterboxes by Christmas to take advantage of that crucial Christmas shopping period.
The interesting thing here is just how much it will cost. Amazon is clearly wanting to make inroads on Apple's tablet success (especially if these rumours of an iPad Mini are true) and so, pricing will be an important factor. There are suggestions that you could snap one up for as little as £200 with Amazon then recouping the money it lost from the cheap sales via the sales of eBooks, video streams and apps.
We're looking forward to seeing it arrive here on these shores (indeed, we're looking forward to seeing the original too) if only Amazon would hurry up and remember that life does, indeed, continue once you leave the United States.
