Amazon Starts Premature Holiday Shopping Season With Early Kindle HD Release

Recommended Videos

Amazon doesn’t seem content to wait until next week to start with the holiday offers. It just released the Wi-Fi enable version of its new Kindle Fire HD five days ahead of schedule. That means that holiday shopping season is officially upon us, and even a little faster than usual. At this rate, we’ll all be doing our shopping for next Christmas by sometime around President’s Day, and will probably just skip the other holidays altogether.

We wrote about the Kindle Fire HD when it was announced in September at an underwhelming event. The new Kindle features an 8.9″ screen and hopes to unseat the iPad as the reigning tablet this holiday season. The Wi-Fi model sells for $299 and will be available at Best Buy stores tomorrow.
