Amazon Fire Phone comes to the UK exclusively for sale through O2. Amazon has pipped Apple to the post and announced the UK launch of their Fire Phone before Apple's expected iPhone 6 announcement.
Customers who buy a Fire phone before 31 December, 2014 will get a year's worth of Prime for free and unlimited photo storage on Amazon's Cloud storage system. Those who already have Amazon's Prime service won't miss out and will get the next year of their Prime membership free.
If you buy the Amazon Fire Phone after this time, remember to factor Prime membership into your budget, as the phone is intrinsically linked to Amazon's services and Fire ownership doesn't really make sense unless you fully buy into Amazon. Built into the Fire phone is Mayday, which offers round-the-clock tech support through the medium of video call, and the ASAP predictive screening feature also built into Fire TV.
The Fire Phone will be available for free on a monthly £33 contract from O2 and will save customers £79 on the cost for a year of Amazon Prime. This gives users free one-day delivery, access to Amazon’s on-demand streaming library (including films and TV series such as Twin Peaks and The Walking Dead) and more than 500,000 free Kindle ebooks..
