Just saw the video for the release of the new Kindle tab, do you know if you'll be stocking it & when?

It seems to be a USA product only.

The release date looks like November 15th. Don't know if this is worldwide or not but you'd hope that we would get the chance here in time for Christmas. As and when I get info I'll update.

Is this the same for the other new Kindles announced today? Any word on price yet?

I'm fairly interested in the price of the Kindle 4. I cant help but assume that it wont match the $79 price in the US.

£89 and doesn't have any of the sponsored ads that the US one has

Apparantly its only available in the U.S at the moment, as i tried to pre-order and it wouldnt ship to me.
Im sick of not being able to get things, and it only being in the U.S. No doubt when they eventually decide to release it to us poor relatives, we will be charged an inflated price!!!!

Hopefully will have some family member on holiday in the States at some stage and can get one shipped to them and they can bring it home.

AFAIK the Silk browser won't work as intended if you're outside the States as it uses the Amazon Cloud to speed it up and I'm not sure if this will work, there is an option though to turn off the Silk browser and use the browser like a conventional one.

So the only services you would have on the Kindle are:

The App Store (this works on my android phone so should be ok)
The Kindle store (as above, and I can purchase books from the US)

The MP3 store and Movies/TV shows won't work and you'll just have to load them on using the 8GB internal memory.

No SD slot is a huge draw-back as well as a 16GB would be nice and handy to circumvent the movies/tv issue.

Highly doubtful that the Fire will be available outside the US.

We'll be waiting a long while I'd imagine.

It's not on our radar for Christmas.

You need to be asking Amazon, not the retailers.

Could be some time, the Kindle Fire uses a cloud based web browser. All content you view goes through their servers first, because they're an American based company your data would be vulnerable to US laws. So really it's just the EU looking protecting us.
