Amazon Fire Kindle 8

I've just bought one of the above in the Amazon UK black friday sale to give me to my elderly father to look at some photos and videos etc.

Amazon have told me that because I bought a version that came with an offer, it comes with a light version of bloatware that shows offers etc.

Anyone know I can remove it without having to pay Amazon?

no the preinstalled software is pretty much locked in unless you root the device and install another version of Android OS. Research what you buy before hitting the submit button

well I can still pay to have it uninstalled.  Just checking to see if anyone knows another way.  besides, it was not clear that adware etc would be included, just because it said special offers, thought maybe there were leafleted offers included or something.
