Amazon has made its fame, glory and income in the USA, but like any constantly growing company it is always important to keep growing. New markets and ventures are always interesting to see, and Amazon will try to spread its business throughout India via the release of Kindle Fire HD tablets. Not long ago Amazon India was open for business at the web-location of Amazon.In but it currently there isn't a lot that Amazon has to offer. However, major changes don't happen overnight and Amazon will try to grow this new venture over the next years. One of the first steps for this is to bring affordable tablet devices and e-readers to their new clients and this is where the Kindle Fire HD comes in.
Their official press release states that they plan to offer their clients from India the Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9 inch device. The release date for the two tablets is June 27th and the two tablets will ship for 15,999 ($275) and 21,999 ($380) rupees with access to a reported 1.9 million-plus apps, games and books. While this does sound great and all, it is a rather standard offer and the price is a bit concerning. However, this is hardly Amazon's fault since, from what we understand, India has major taxes and tariffs on electronic devices. Nonetheless, it is great that the people in India are slowly getting access to all perks that Amazon can provide and hopefully their new business will grow.
Where can you get one o these devices in India aside from the official website? Well, Amazon will ship their tablets to local retail stores by the end of the month as well. Among these retailers the most famous names include Croma, Reliance Digital, E-Zone and Vijay Sales stores. These are located in the following cities: Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Pune
