Kindle International Coverage Update Before Launch

I’ve been keeping track of the number of books that is available to every country with the intent of publishing the delta like the previous one. However in the last couple of days updates were so many that it doesn’t make sense to highlight any country in particular. Pretty much every since one has gotten 10..80K extra books between the announcement of international Kindle release and the actual ship date which is today. The few countries that didn’t see any change were the ones who started with high book counts to begin with (more than 280,000).

After the release of international Kindle was announced, several people have complained that many interesting books were not available to their non-US Amazon accounts. Hopefully these changes should at least partially solve this problem.

If you have previously tried to buy a Kindle book and couldn’t because of geographical restrictions, you try it now and drop a comment here whether it worked on not.

1 comment to Kindle International Coverage Update Before Launch

  • DeadOnArrival

    Nope! Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series still unavailable in the good ole UK. I think I’ll wait on Amazon’s so-called UK-centric Kindle experience and maybe try again then…unless the nook or the Sony Daily Edition beat it out with availablility / ebook library. Which I’ll admit is unlikely.
