Amazon Kindle comes to the UK

Two years after the release in the US of the Amazon Kindle, the device finally makes its way to the UK!  As from today you can buy the gadget from Amazon.  this is a special version for the international market with tweaks to ensure it can get network connectivity.

It’s not all good news though – because the international version is a special build, you can only get the Kindle 2, not the DX with the nice screen.  Oh well – I suppose we can’t have everything.

Also bear in mind the Orwelian remote deletion feature which Amazon got slated for earlier in ’09 and maybe you will think twice before you part with your cash.

I’ll put one on my wish list for xmas and can always delete it if the early UK reviews are not encouraging!
