Amazon has a change of heart over this weekend by changing pricing policy by allowing Kindle Fire HD users to pay $15 extra to turn off ads that are built into the devices.
With Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD, there will be a special offers opt-out option for $15. We know from our Kindle reader line that customers love our special offers and very few people choose to opt out. We’re happy to offer customers the choice.
Kindle Fire HD 7-inch is $200 and ships September 14. The Kindle Fire 8.9-inch will retail at $300 and ships November 20. And adding 4G, with LTE and 32GB storage for only $500. The device will feature an HDMI output for sharing content on a TV. And the display will be using no-gap lamination techniques and antiglare polarization to improve readability. The dual-antenna Wi-Fi antenna system should improve Internet speed and streaming-media quality.
Amazon is also going to release a smartphone that runs on Android OS 4.0 and Nokia Maps.
