  • The UK will also be getting the latest version of the standard 7-inch Kindle Fire. The tablet runs on a 1.2GHz OMAP 4430 processor, which Amazon says provides 40-percent faster performance than its predecessor. It has a 1024x600-pixel resolution and promises nine hours of battery life.

    At £129, however, the price difference is so small it's hard to see many people opting for the lower-specced device.

  • The price of Amazon's basic Kindle e-reader has now dropped to just £69 following the announcement of the Kindle Fires. It has a 6-inch e-ink display, weighs 170g and holds up to 1,400 books.
