It’s been a long wait, but Canadians can finally purchase the Kindle in the Amazon Kindle store. When Amazon announced the International Kindle, they left Canada off the list – the rumored reason being mobile connectivity agreements.
Amazon announced that customers in Canada would be able to purchase the Kindle and the 300,000-Plus eBooks from the Kindle store. The Kindle is available for shipment immediately. One strange item of note I noticed on the description on Amazon.ca, - The Kindle’s web browser and blog subscription service will not work in Canada but customers will have free access to Wikipedia.
Amazon is beating Barnes & Noble to the punch on this one after all. While Barnes & Noble announced that eBooks would be available in Canada, their Nook eReaders as of yet are not available for order in Canada.
Thanks to Wayne for the tip!
