Nosmo, I don't think Text to Speech is available on any tablets including the Fire and won't be available on the new Paperwhite ereader either. .

It has a virtual keyboard not a physical one. The HD version has Bluetooth so a Bluetooth enabled keyboard should work with it if my understanding of the product page is correct.

I'm quite happy for US buyers of the Paperwhite to work out any bugs and quirks before it gets released here in the UK.

Doh! I only wanted the Paperwhite. Really disappointed. Can't see why you can release the new Fire here, but not the new eInk device. UK customers being treated as second class again. I guess, like with the touch, there will be a six or seven month delay. Now very tempted by the new Nook or Kobo with frontlights, which are out in the next couple of months. Boo Amazon!

No good to me, no 3g, not many hotspots or wifi around the docks where I spent all my time

For those of you who are disgruntled by Amazon's latest offering (like myself) it is suspected that Apple will announce an iPad Mini in 5 days time. Supposedly the 'mini' will be priced at $250-$300 so as to compete with the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.

Does anyone know how well the new Kindle Fire HD will read in sunshine - The Ipad fails there so how does the Fire handle bright light??

Fails ? I have no problem reading in the sunshine on my iPad.

I've been waiting for the Kindle Fire since it was released in the US. Now they release the Fire HD here but not the 8.9, why in heavens name not? Well. I'm not prepared to wait any longer. I'l be buying the Samsung Note 10.1 unless Amazon decide to release the 8.9 version in the UK soon.

"I've been waiting for the Kindle Fire since it was released in the US."

The two that they've released here are the same size as the one you've been waiting for.

Right, I have one of the original keyboard Kindles with 3G. Love it especially when abroad and want to download more books anywhere. Does either of the new Fire versions have this capability, I just don't understand technospeak, I want to know if I can pick up some wifi/whispernet/whispersync whatever and where ever I am in Europe or the World. If the answer to this is "yes" then I'm pre-ordering right away!

amazon.com won't ship the fire to ireland either.

Here's a gadget for reading books from amazon, so why doesn't the info for the fire and fire HD give any information about the functionality for reading, i.e. font types and size. Load of visually impaired people like me have been longing for this to arrive in the UK, and now it has the blurb is missing the part of the spec that's crucial to us. Please amend.

Mr. P. Saar says:
Why is it that America are getting an 8.9" screen with dual core 1.5 gh Processor AND 4g AND the option of 64gb storage. Why is it we get the lower spec first, why can't it be released simultaneously????????.
