Amazon Kindle Still MIA In Canada But Sony Digital Reader A Worthy Substitute PDF Print E-mail

By the Chapter and Verse Team » Canada may have missed out on being part of the international launch of the best-selling Amazon Kindle, but the news isn’t all bad for those keen on purchasing a digital ebook reader.

The Kindle 2 was made available to 100 other countries on October 19 amid much teeth-gnashing in Canada, which was not among the hot 100. (The main reason, apparently, is that Amazon has yet to strike a deal with a wireless carrier in Canada to allow it to deliver wireless content to the Kindle).

For now, Canadians have only one major alternative – but it’s a very good one: Sony’s Reader Digital Book.
