WHY AMAZON'S KINDLE IS NOT HERE IN CANADA

WHY AMAZON'S KINDLE IS NOT AVAILABLE IN CANADA

Ehren Cheung of Dundurn Press writes to me with the real reason that Amazon's new e-book reader is not available north of the 49th parallel:

Julie, I wouldn't mind getting a Kindle either actually, despite the fact that I think a lot of people around me don't seem to be so fond of e-books :)

The Kindle will take some time to arrive in Canada because at the moment, Amazon is using Sprint/Verizon's wireless technology to operate the Kindle. Perhaps they may crack a deal with Shaw, Rogers, Bell or Telus?

I hope they do - I can't wait!
