As United States customers await a Kindle Fire 2 release date by the Amazon company, it may be a welcome time for United Kingdom tablet fans as well. A recent report talks about how the UK will probably never see the current version of the Kindle tablet arrive in stores there. However, with the unveiling of a newer, improved gadget, that may give the company reason to expand where its product is sold.
The competition is already fierce for a new Kindle Fire release, since Apple and Google have introduced suitable products for consumers. Both of them are available in territories beyond the United States too. According to ZDNet.com, Amazon will have to address several issues in order to bring a tablet PC to the United Kingdom. First and Foremost, they need their hardware capabilities to get a major upgrade, since the Nexus 7 is currently on "fire" in terms of buyers and customer satisfaction. Not to mention that device from Apple called "the iPad."
ZDNet states in their report:
"Should Amazon ever want to bring a Kindle Fire successor to markets outside of the US (at least ones where the Nexus 7 is available) it will not only need to revamp its hardware first, but also make sure it has the right content licensing agreements in place, if it is to have any hope of making an impact."
About that last point mentioned, the Amazon company does not have its digital video, music download, books and apps service available in many regions outside of the United States. For that reason, Amazon would have to iron out those kinks in order to bring one of its tablets to the United Kingdom. Basically, bringing the tablet as it currently is over to the UK would be a tough sell.
However, once a Kindle Fire 2 release date is announced, it could be a sign of good things to come. If the hardware has been upgraded to further enhance the user experience, and it's able to compete with the likes of the iPad and Nexus 7, then maybe Amazon will begin expanding the product's reach. United Kingdom and other worldwide tech fans will simply need to watch and wait for Amazon's next moves.
