Vodafone has signed a deal with Amazon to be the US-based company’s exclusive airtime connectivity partner in Europe for the new Kindle Fire HDX 4G LTE.
 
The deal means that Vodafone will be the only operator who will be offering the new device for which it has designed specific 3G and 4G LTE mobile data offers.
 
The new tablets, which will come with a pre-installed Vodafone SIM card, will offer 5 GB data for three months, 20GB Amazon cloud storage and vouchers for the Amazon store for a flat one-off fee of €35 in Germany and £25 in the UK initially. 
 
Customers will have the option of signing up to one of Vodafone's data plans after the initial three-month period expires.
 
Patrick Chomet, Vodafone Group Director of Terminals, said the deal is “a great package” for customers who want to “get the most out of their new Kindle Fire HDX 4G LTE while on the move”.
  
Vodafone has worked with Amazon since 2010 through its M2M business, providing embedded 3G connectivity for earlier Kindle devices.
 
“The Kindle Fire HDX 4G LTE is our best tablet, and we welcome this extension of our relationship with Vodafone which will give our customers ultrafast access to the vast wealth of digital content available on Amazon,” commented Jorrit Van Der Meulen, Amazon Vice President of Kindle Europe.
