A couple more low cost Android tablets have made their way to Canada finally as Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and Kinde Fire HD 8.9″ are both available for purchase through Amazon.ca right now.  The Kindle Fire HD starts at $214 for the 16GB and goes up to $244 for the 32GB.  The larger device will set you back a little bit more as it is price at $284 for the 16GB and $314 for the 32GB.  Here are the specs again in case you’re intersted:

Kindle Fire HD

  • 7? 1280×800 Resolution IPS Display
  • 1.2GHz Dual-Core Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB Internal Storage
  • Front Facing Camera
  • Android 4.0 with Amazon’s Skin

Kindle Fire HD 8.9?

  • 8.9? 1920×1200 Resolution IPS Display
  • 1.5GHz Dual-Core Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB Internal Storage
  • Front Facing Camera
  • Android 4.0 with Amazon’s Skin

Again, these devices are running a very heavily customized version of Android that has no access to the Play Store and some other Google services.  It does come loaded with Amazon’s App Store, which is probably the second best option after the Play Store, and if you really need to there are various work arounds to get those Google Apps back on the device or even get stock Android running on the device.

Anybody pick this up yet or planning to get it?
