Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Amazon will release the Kindle Fire over here in the UK during January 2012, it has been claimed.

The Android-based Fire went on sale in the US on 15 November for $199 (£127), a price point that has got a lot of folk in the UK eager to get their mitts on one.

They won't get it before Christmas, a mole claiming to be close to the planned launch, told Know Your Mobile, but the 7in tablet will be arriving early next year.

Heck, it might even be priced as cheaply here as it is in the States - £152 when you add VAT - but don't hold your breath.

Is your appetite for Fire whetted? Read Reg Hardware's review of the tablet here. ®
