AMAZON'S KINDLE AVAILABLE TO CANADIAN READERS


At long last Amazon announced today that their e-reader is available to Canadian readers. See the Globe and Mail's article at http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/technology/kindle-set-to-hit-canada/article1366152/.

This is the result of successful negotiations with an unnamed Canadian wireless provider.

With over 360,000 titles available, including the latest releases, I cannot wait to get my hands on one. The Kindle is at the top of my Christmas wish list. How about yours?

Seems you have to order it from Amazon.com, not .ca. USD$259.00 + $20 s&h + $30 import duties.  Buy it here.
