British buyers can now order the third and forth generation Kindle Readers direct from the UK. Click the link above for full details and current pricing.
Please note, since writing this article the six inch display Kindle has been improved. There are two options (one using wi-fi, the other using 3G and/or wi-fi to connect to the internet and give you almost instant downloads of new ebooks), both of which are available to buy via the links above from the United Kingdom. The Kindle 4 offers a smaller, cheaper option for those that really just want to read on the device, whilst the Kindle 3 features a larger memory, longer battery life and a keyboard as well as 3G internet connection making web browsing and note taking that little bit easier.
Back to the original post…
Please note the following was written before the Kindle 3 was made available in the UK Kindle Store…
The Kindle Wireless Reading Device has achieved massive success in the US for several years now. Since Oct 2009 it has been opened up to a much wider audience. In fact not only can the Kindle Reader be bought from almost anywhere now, its wireless download function also works on over one hundred countries worldwide.
There is though still much confusion about where to buy the Kindle in the UK, London, Europe and just about everywhere. The reason is that though you are now allowed to buy, own and use this marvelous little ebook reader just about everywhere, there is still only one place actually selling the things. Wherever you are, you will still only be able to buy a new Kindle Wireless Handheld Reader from one source; amazon.com.
The sellers of the worlds most popular e-reader are keeping a firm control on stocks and shipments, so all customers must buy from this single source. But with reliable and surprisingly fast international shipping who really cares how far away the order is coming from? The main thing is that at least now gadget fans and book lovers across the UK and Europe can at last get hold of the Kindle Wireless Reading Device. Its about time is all we at Handheld Ebook Readers UK can say. If the store ever allows stocks to be carried in Europe or London we will of course let you know but for now if you want to Buy the UK Kindle head on over to amazon.com. While you are there you may wish to buy your Kindle Accessories there too, or of course you could buy Kindle Covers in the UK instead.
Don’t let the fact that you cannot buy the Kindle directly from London or indeed anywhere else in Britain or Europe deter you from enjoying the enormous charm of this hugely popular product. It is true other e-readers are better suited to some, but the Kindle still offers the cheapest source of best-sellers and new titles to consumers.
So remember if you want to know Where to Buy the Kindle in the UK, the answer is here! And, for any ex-pats soaking up the sun it looks like you’ll be able to buy the Kindle in Spain by the end of 2011.
