Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 gets price cut
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 has had its price cut
The online retailer is launching the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan. Dave Limp, president of Amazon's Kindle business, said that with the increased production of the tablets coming from the overseas launch, the price of components for the devices has dropped and Amazon is able to pass the cost reduction on to its customers. In a statement, Limp said, "Whenever we are able to create cost efficiencies like this, we want to pass the savings along to our customers."
