Amazon said in a press statement that its Kindle Fire HD devices are now available to customers in over 170 countries for pre-order through Amazon.com.

Amazon.com also lists Incredible Connection as the official retailer for South Africa which will stock Kindle devices and Kindle accessories.

The Amazon.com website lists the Kindle Fire HD prices for South Africa (and internationally) as follows:

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9’’ 4G LTE wireless model is currently not available for pre-order to South African clients in the Amazon store.

It is currently not clear what the pricing for the Kindle Fire HD will be when it becomes available at Incredible Connection.

The Amazon App store has also been launched in South Africa, which gives customers access to millions of apps, games, books, audiobooks and magazines.
