From today, Amazon has started selling its Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablets in the Indian market. You can purchase the tablet, which was unveiled a fortnight ago, from Amazon.in.
The tablet runs on a custom version of Android operating system. Kindle Fire HD tablets come with Amazon Appstore for the user’s app requirements since there is no Google Play or Google apps accessible.
The features include dual-core processor, WiFi connectivity, 16/32GB of internal storage, front HD camera and 1GB of RAM. Apart from this Amazon allows users to connect their tablets to their Amazon account at the time of ordering. It contains all the eBook purchases of the user and even the app downloads sent from the Appstore website to the device.
The prices of Kindle Fire HD tablets in India are:
Amazon Kindle Fire HD 16GB version: INR 15,999

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 32GB version: INR 25,999
The pricing of the Kindle Fire HD tablet is in line with Nexus 7 in the country. This is a tactical move by the retail giant. Amazon will gain some advantage, as there is no direct competitor to Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in the country.
