Over the weekend Amazon made a switch in their pricing policy and announced that purchasers of its new Kindle Fire tablets could pay $15 extra in order to turn off advertisments that are built directly into the devices.
The announcement by Amazon came only a day after they unveiled larger Kindle Fire tablets that ranged in price from $159 to $599. Amazon’s direct challenge to Apple’s iPad.
Furthermore, Amazon unveiled the new wireless tablets without having received approval for their sale from the Federal Communications Commission, which requires that products operate safely and will not interefere with other signals. Amazon declared that they will receive the approval in time to meet its planned shipping date of November 20th.
