Does Kindle Fire HD work well in Africa?
Using Kindle fire hd in Nigeria
After reading a lot of hype and reviews about Amazon's latest tablet version - The Kindle fire hd, and having followed the kindle revolution for so long, almost religiously, I decided that it was time to get a Kindle for myself, even though I live in Nigeria, West Africa.
One question a lot of people in Africa would want to know about the kindle or rather the latest Kindle fire hd is "Whether it would be useful in Africa?. "Does Amazon offer support for Kindle fire users in Africa?".
Well one way to find out the extent of services and satisfaction one can gain from using the Kindle fire hd here in Africa, particularly Nigeria is to simply get one and use it.
I got my 7 inch Kindle fire hd after about 7 days of ordering on Amazon using a mail forwarding service and have been using it in Nigeria. It may not offer the service serivices or benefits in Africa as it would offer it the user was in the USA or UK and so this is my review of using the Kindle fire in Nigeria, West Africa and I guess it would be similar to what is obtainable in other parts of Africa.
