Amazon has started accepting preorders for its Kindle Fire HD tablet from 170 countries worldwide, and as a side benefit, it has opened access to its Amazon Appstore to almost 200 nations globally in the face of an expected June 13 launch date.
However, the biggest issue for most tablet enthusiasts worldwide has been that Amazon has rarely ventured out of its strongholds in a select few major nations.
Moreover, even the folks who did manage to lay their hands on a Kindle device (by importing it from another country) have faced issues due to Amazon’s content and Appstore being geofenced to practically all countries globally.
This new decision taken by the Jeff Bezos led giant has effectively made it a competitor to Apple on a global scale now, with the Kindle Fire HD now being available to more than thrice as many countries as the Apple iPad.
The Kindle Fire HD’s relatively bargain basement prices are bound to get a lot of traction in sales, albeit with some competent marketing effort.
