Amazon is announcing both wider-scale availability of its largest Kindle Fire -- the HD 8.9-inch -- along with a price cut of both Wifi and 4G versions. Starting today the new, larger tablet will come to Europe -- UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain -- as well as Japan. That's quite a big increase in availability, as Amazon has typically struggled to push out its Kindle products to other countries which has likely been due to a lack of content deals to sell media on the devices. Along with the increased availability, the Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch is receiving a price cut to $269 for the Wifi model and $399 if you want a 4G data connection.
That's a drop of $30 on the Wifi model and whole $100 on the 4G model. As for the data pricing on the 4G model, the plans are staying the same at $50 per year for 250MB of data per month through AT&T. In typical Amazon fashion the new, cheaper Kindle Fires are immediately available for purchase.
