Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9 now available for pre-order in 'over 170 countries'


Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 7- and 8.9-inch slates have only seen limited shores since they were formally announced, but today the company has said they're now available for pre-order in more than "170 countries and territories around the world." 

We could try and list the markets the tablets are new to, but it's easier to say that until now, they've only found spots in Amazon stores in the US, Europe and Japan. We're not surprised to see the hardware get a much wider release, given the e-tailer revealed its plan to take the Appstore global last month. 

The only other nugget in the presser is a shipping date of June 13th for Ireland, Gibraltar, Austria, Luxembourg and Monaco. Head over to your local Amazon portal for confirmation your region's one of the 170.
