Amazon.co.uk showing placeholder page for Kindle Fire

Whilst the Kindle Fire is not yet available in the UK, a new placeholder page has appeared on Amazon.co.uk for the Kindle Fire where it is listed as Currently Unavailable.

Past experience seems to indicate that these placeholder pages are added shortly before an official release, so let's all keep our fingers crossed.

UPDATE: This links has now been removed by Amazon - make of it what you will.

I wrote that review with my honest opinion and its not intended as slander yet simply for my view that should be considered as something to be aware of and improved on and that is all. So far its great for its price I and intend on keeping it for a long time!! People are for example are commenting on things like "ooh the video play quality is stunning" when its not where as my view on playback is more in detail ie slightly pixely..
What way would you sum it up?

Hi Lou! I just had a live chat with amazon Uk and enquired on the existence of that link and "Deirdre" commented that her team could not comment on this enquiry and just ended her answers with " is there anythink i can help you with today" so bluntly answered "Erma no that's all".

There were a lot of rumours going around before Christmas about an early 2012 release in the UK, but this seems to have died down. It's interesting that the page has now been removed since your call to customer services. I think something's definitely in the works with this.

Yeah does doesn't it!! How did you come across the link? as I simply typed kindle fire into search box at amazon uk and nothink came up apart from stating it a US only product.
Do you have the fire or will you be making the purchase?
