Those of us who live in the U.S. and this region of the world take it for granted that devices such as the Kindle may not be available in many other countries weeks after their initial launch. In the case of the Kindle Touch 3G, the wait is over for residents of 175 countries around the globe. Amazon has started shipping these units starting last Friday. The device does not need any introduction. It is the same Kindle Touch we have come to love with 3G capability.
Orders from customers worldwide for our new line of electronic ink Kindles have exceeded our expectations …. We know that customers are eager to get their hands on our newest Kindle which is why we’re delighted to be able to ship several days earlier than we planned,
said Dave Limp, vice president, Amazon Kindle. Your final price may differ depending on the country you live in. The device will be available through various retailers worldwide. You can check to see how you can get your hands on one here.
