Flash! Kiwi Kindleers, welcome to the Klub!

Amazon has just announced that it will ship Kindles (and Kindle content) to New Zealand!

For Kindleers in New Zealand (Kiwindleers?), you can get the device here:

Kindle 3 with wi-fi and 3G USD $189

Kindle 3 wi-fi only USD $139

You will have access to blogs…like this one!  🙂

It won’t ship with a wall adapter, but I never use one.  It does come with the USB charger (that’s what I use). 

Prices (and payment) will be in US dollars.

It says you’ll start with 380,000 titles…about 300,000 more than we hadwhen the US store started.  🙂

    Hi Bufo: Thanks – that’s helpful. I succumbed and ordered a Kindle “3” to add to my Kindle DX. But I can’t find an answer to this question – if I have subscriptions to blogs/newspapers/mags will they load on both? I picked up a hint from you that they would not.

    If not, argh. Thanks much! Kathy

    Whoops, sorry, left the message above in response to your piece about what to do with an “old” kindle. Wrong thread. Kathy

      Thanks for writing, Kathy!

      Whoops, I meant to include the subscription issue…I’ll add that.

      Kindle store ubscriptions can only go to one device on the account…either the DX or the K3, but not both.
