You can now pre-order Kindle Fire HDX International

Amazon’s new Kindle Fire has just started shipping to US. This is not the big news. The big news is that Kindle Fire HDX International will start shipping on November 26.

A couple of weeks ago we discovered that Amazon quietly launched Kindle Paperwhite International.

Amazon’s most advanced e-reader is available for pre-order from over 170 countries since mid-September. Quite surprising, having in mind that international users had to wait three months for the global release of 1st generation Paperwhite.

Now, this is even more surprising. Kindle Fire HDX International is already available for pre-order on Amazon US. Shipping will start, if no delays occur, on November 26.

Both sizes launched internationally, the 7″ and 8.9″. The price of the cheapest HDX, the 7-inch 16GB, is $244. It’s exactly the same as a relevant version for US customers (16GB, with no special offers). There is no price penalty for foreign customers of Amazon US.

For the 32GB version you’ll pay $284. 64GB costs $324.

The prices of the 8.9-inch model start from $394 (16GB). The 64GB version costs $100 more. No 4G models are available for international users.

News Amazon tablets feature high pixel density (323 ppi in 7″, and 339 ppi in 8.9″), and perfect color accuracy (100% sRGB). They both have a powerful 2.2GHz quad-core processor, Mayday – on-device customer support, and the new version of Fire OS.

Innovative Origami Case was designed for Kindle Fire HDX. It ships from November 8

Having in mind that Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ will start shipping to US customers on November 7, the delay is only three weeks.

Most importantly, international customers of Amazon US can buy the newest models for Christmas – something that didn’t happen before. Together with the new Kindle Paperwhite, it is a new rule rather than old exception.

Amazon Appstore for Android launched internationally this May. Before that buying Kindle Fire from outside US didn’t make much sense.

Now everything has changed and, as there is no more reason to keep international customers on waiting list, Amazon had to order enough tablets to meet the pre-Christmas demand both in the US and worldwide.

International versions of Kindle devices have different ASIN numbers than the ones shipping to US. Usually customers from over 170 countries and destinations can order Kindle from Amazon US, but some minor variations may appear, like the ones we reported for India and Malaysia.
