New Kindle Fire ads unavoidable: Amazon
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
When Amazon yesterday launched its new Kindle Fire tablets and the Paperwhite e-book reader, there was a tiny add-on that went almost unnoticed: each of the new Kindle Fires would include compulsory ads labeled as "Special Offers". And now it has come to light that there is no opt-out mechanism either. An Amazon spokesperson has confirmed to CNET that there will not be an ad-free version or an opt-out mechanism. You will have ads on the Kindle Fire’s lock-screen as well as a link to “Special Offers” and sponsored deals on the home screen.
The all-new Kindle Fire HD with an 8.9-inch screen. And ads.
