A pleasant surprise is in store for all you Europeans very shortly, as Amazon have announced that their newest – and best – ereader will be available in a whole slew of European countries over the next two months.
As of now you can pre-order your shiny new Paper White ereader with front light from their various local sites in Europe (details and links below).
This is much earlier than we all expected, as normally they take much longer before releasing their newer models outside the USA, preferring to first get as many sold in the USA as possible before letting the rest of us buy the latest model Kindles.
So, if you have been champing at the bit to get your hands on one of these extremely good dedicated ereaders, you can now rush off to their various sites and get your order in at once, and only have to wait a few weeks before you can start to enjoy reading on them… So go for it folks.
Here are the relevant details you need:
- Amazon UK (WiFi £109; 3G £169) – Ships November 12th
- Amazon Italy (WiFi €129; 3G €189) – Ships November 22nd
- Amazon Germany (WiFi €129; 3G €189) – Ships December 3rd
- Amazon France (WiFi €129; 3G €189) – Ships November 22nd
- Amazon Spain (WiFi €129; 3G €189) – Ships November 22nd
Seems to cover things nicely enough.
Now it is only Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the rest of the world who are still kept out of the party.. What price for a Kindle Paper White in Angola eh?
