The Amazon Kindle has been made available in a Wireless model for use in international markets. Over 100 countries are supported at this time.For those wanting to experience our products on the Kindle we offer a selection of products already at the Kindle Store. We believe this step is a good move by Amazon to bring ebook technologies combined with hardware and a marketplace to a broader global audience. For English speaking countries (our primary audience), the news isn’t all roses at the moment. The device and it’s wireless services are available in these countries (some countries may lack wireless service):
- South Africa
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand (our home country)
Check the link below, then use the link on the page for international availability checking for countries not listed here.For customers in countries where the Kindle is not available I’d recommend looking at other devices. The Apple iPhone or iPod Touch is a great pocket device, and using Stanza with our Mobipocket formatted books and some of our PDFs is an acceptable alternative. We’ll be publishing in the future a list of devices and major software readers our products are compatible with.
