Amazon launching Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ in Canada, ships June 13th

    I’m not interested in a Kindle, but if Amazon included Video with the Prime Subscription in Canada like they do in the States, I’d be all over it.

    If it doesn’t support Prime streaming and MP3 what’s the point of this? Kindle books and apps can be used on other tablets as well… I don’t understand.

  • Tommy Crosby

    With the time we waited for that, they could have took more time but give us the next generation of Kindles. The price for the 7″ is more or less the price of the Nexus 7 and have much slower hardware. (Not counting the fact that a new Nexus 7 is approaching).
    If you add the fact that the available Amazon services offered in Canada can be archived on non Amazon devices, I really don’t see the point of buying this now.
    Still, I welcome the competition.

    Can’t these be hacked to remove that Amazon bloatware overlay and just render a vanilla Android tablet?

  • Kris Pucci

    old hardware…no thanks.

    Other then the really nice screen on the 8.9 theres not much reason to get one of these.


    I like how they adapted for the Canadian market by costing more for less.

    Too little, too late. I just bought my Kobo ARC a few weeks ago. I was shopping primarily for an eReader but decided to go with something that was a bit more than just an eReader. I would’ve considered the Kindle Fire HD but Amazon really dropped the ball on this Canadian release. What took so long Amazon?
