Kindle Fire, Touch not available to UK, European markets


Zack Whittaker reports on who won’t be seeing the hot new tablet.

“UK customers will no doubt be disappointed, looking forward to the streaming services and advanced models — a market which has yet to break away from the traditional computer into the tablet space. While iPad sales are doing well, compared to other European markets and the United States, the UK is still behind.”

Ultrabooks vs tablets: tablet demise greatly exaggerated

The Register

Tony Smith writes that tablets may not be as hot as some might think.

“HP and RIM both released product that was behind the technology or design curve. But other makes have caught up quickly, most notably Samsung, with its very nice Galaxy Tab 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1. Which is probably why it’s getting so much attention from Apple Legal. Now, Apple may well fail and Samsung may get its new Galaxy Tabs out, only to find that punters have indeed grown weary of tablets. They may indeed favour Ultrabooks instead.”
