Vodafone has teamed up with Amazon to provide 4G for its new Kindle Fire HDX tablet.
The device will have a Vodafone sim preinstalled and will come with a £25 starter pack which includes 5GB of data across three months, 20GB of Amazon cloud storage and vouchers for the online retailer. The deal will initially be offered in the UK and German market and customers have the option of signing up with the operator once the three month period ends.
The partnership first came about in 2010 when Vodafone provided 3G for earlier Kindle devices, and the network will be the only telecoms operator to offer the tablets in its stores. Customers can also purchase the new tablet with 3G capability as well as the ultrafast network.
Vodafone Group director of terminals Patrick Chomet said: ‘Vodafone has worked with Amazon over the years to provide Vodafone customers with an easy and reliable means of getting the content they want, whenever and wherever they want it. Vodafone and Amazon are offering a great package for those who want to get the most out of their new Kindle Fire HDX 4G LTE while on the move.
Amazon vice president of Kindle Europe Jorrit Van Der Meulen added: ‘The Kindle Fire HDX 4G LTE is our best tablet, and we welcome this extension of our relationship with Vodafone which will give our customers ultrafast access to the vast wealth of digital content available on Amazon.’
