Thereseems to be a lot of questions about using the kindle fire in the UK and what it can and can't do. Answers seem to be from people that are answering without having tried a kindle fire, or repeating other (sometimes wrong) replies.
I bought a kindle fire last week in Florida on holiday and brought it back to the UK. This is what I can confirm I can and can't do:
Apps - Using a workaround, I can download apps from prettymuch any sources and they work as advertised. I can't download directly from amazon appstore, as this is not available in UK but the workaround works fine.
Internet - can access all sites as normal. Facebook, hotmail and youtube all work as the same as on a Pc.
Books - can download from amazon Uk no problems.
Films - with a lovefilm account I can watch films on my kindle fire. I cant watch or stream films through amazon, but oddly I can stream and watch all the film trailers!
Music - I can transfer music from my Pc.
The only thing really missing is the Cloud storage, but I can transfer music, films and photos back and forth using my Pc.
Any questions,feel free. Hope this helps!
