Amazon's bringing its Kindle Fire HD 7, 8.9 to India on June 27th

Having recently rebranded its operations in India under the Amazon name, the retailer announced today that it's launching the Kindle Fire HD 7 and 8.9 there later this month. Due on June 27th, the two tablets will ship for 15,999 ($275) and 21,999 ($380) rupees with access to a reported 1.9 million-plus apps, games and books.

The Kindle Fire will also be sold through "over one hundred" brick and mortar stores in India, with a list available on the Amazon website. There will also be locally-sourced content available with tablet-optimized apps for Indian video services like Big Flicks, Chhota Bheem and more, plus ebook prices that are promised to be the lowest in the country.
