As the launch of next-generation Kindle Fire tablets draws near, Amazon has reduced the price of its 7-inch Kindle Fire HD tablet in the Indian market. The tablet is now available for INR 11,999 (16GB version, original price: INR 15,999), while the 32GB version retails for INR 15,999 (original price: INR 18,999)
With this price-cut, Amazon has matched the price of Nexus 7 Wi-Fi version in the country, which has long been selling for INR 11,999 on Amazon.in (Google is still selling Nexus 7 at the original price). The price of the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD remains same.
Originally launched in India just three months ago, Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet does not seem to have got much traction. The limited availability of content via Amazon ecosystem in the country can be blamed for it. Also, by the time Amazon released Kindle Fire HD tablets in the country, they were pretty old as per current standards.
