Canadian Kindle Owners
Finally...Amazon.ca has a Kindle store!
When I was looking around for my first ereader, I was overwhelmed with the choices. I ended up purchasing a Kobo, partly because I wanted to support a company with stronger ties to Canada.
But part of the reason NOT to buy a Kindle was that Amazon.ca did not have a Kindle store. I was shocked the first time I realized this. How could that have been overlooked?
Was it because our language is basically the same? No, probably not...after all, there's a Kindle store on the UK Amazon site.
Maybe it had something to do with Canada's two official languages? Kind of a lame excuse if so, given there's a Kindle store in Japanese.
Could it have been for financial reasons? Does Amazon.com make a bigger profit from Canadian Kindle owners because of the difference between the Canadian and American dollar? If they did, it can't be much now, as the dollars are almost at par. (Right now, MOUNTAIN FIRE is listed at $2.99 on CA, $3.03 on COM)
Anyone have any thoughts? Do you know why it has taken so long to get a Canadian Kindle store?
