Kindle Fire Price and Availability
The Kindle Fire is available on Amazon.com and sells for US$199.00 (approx. PHP8,537.10). It's also available in local online stores. Local sellers seem to—unsurpringly—jack up the prices to P12,000.00 and below.
Anyway, the Kindle Fire is a good machine. It's cheap, it's at par specs-wise, and it's on Android. Unfortunately many of the Kindle Fire's killer services are only available at the US for the moment. If this tablet is really seeking the ouster of the iPad as the number one tablet in the market, then Amazon ought to globalize their services (also resulting to a bigger marketshare).
However if you're one to disregard the lack of support in the Philippines, the Amazon Kindle Fire is a perfect gift for the following holidays.
