New Kindles

Amazon has expanded its Kindle range by launching two Kindle Fire tablets and a new ebook reader.

The Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD are the first Amazon tablets to go on sale in the UK and will be available for £129 and £159 respectively. Amazon has also released a new version of its popular ebook reader, the Kindle Paperwhite.

Both Kindle Fire tablets have 7-inch screens and are smaller than rivals such as the iPad. They are aimed at people that want to watch films and read books on the move and come with access to Amazon's online store.

For more information about the two new tablets and to see how they compare, read our blog post on the Amazon Kindle Fire vs Kindle Fire HD.
