    I remember reading that the Fire won't work fully in the UK; something to do with Amazon Cloud issues I think?
    This is only from memory but may be a starting point for a seach.

    I think it could be because I looked into this myself. As above, the main issue relates to Amazon Cloud and that doesn't have a release date for the UK (as far as I'm aware) so a bit like dominos really.
