It may be available in Europe. Until last week, the only other device officially available in Europe is the iLiad, which costs significantly more than the Kindle is rumoured to. The Gen3 modifies this point, but this is a recent development.
IF it uses EVDO, that would rule out its use in Europe. EVDO is CDMA technology; European mobile phone networks are exclusively GSM.
