Amazon has reviled three new versions of its Kindle Fire tablet, as they continute to take on Apple’s iPad and Google’s new Nexus 7. The new offering is called ‘Kindle Fire HD’, and will use a partly ad-funded business model. The devices come with ads, called “special offers” that appear when screens are locked and in the corner of the home screen, helping Amazon keep prices low. Customers will special offers and screensavers from big brands such as AT&T, Discover and Intel, with a special offer of a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card when a customer uses their Discover card to purchase a digital product on Amazon. The premium Kindle Fire HD has a 1920-by-1200 resolution screen, lagging behind Apple’s so-called ‘retina’ display. It is also slightly smaller than the iPad’s screen. The devices can be ordered today on Amazon for shipping on 25 October.
