Dixons: Brits to get iPad Mini, Kindle Fire for Xmas

Crystal balls up?

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Our generous gift of the oxygen of publicity today goes out to Dixons, which this morning forecast that Brits will be able to buy not only Amazon's Kindle Fire but also a "mystery" Apple product by Christmas.

Not exactly staggering leaps of the imagination, you might reasonably think, given the flood of rumours concerning the 'iPad Mini' and Amazon's possible response to both a smaller Apple tablet and the imminent Google Nexus 7.

The Kindle Fire is, at least, a shipping product, but one thus far only available Stateside. That didn't stop Dixons showing off some accessories for the device at a showcase event today, implying that it expects the Fire's UK debut to take place in the near future.

About time too: the US release took place in October 2011. Indeed, so long ago was that - in tech market terms - that Amazon UK will ignore the Fire here and skip straight to the soon-to-be-announced - if rumours are to be believed - Fire 2.

Let's hope all the cases Dixons have bought still fit. ®
