Amazon Drops $2 International Delivery Fee?

It's being reported that the $2 international delivery fee that used to get added to kindle store ebook prices for most international customers has now been dropped.

Checking a reasonably large ebook and a free ebook at Amazon.com, and changing regions reveals some interesting changes.

There are now three kinds of charging region. One that doesn't have the extra delivery charge at all. One that only has the delivery charge on non-free ebooks, and one that has the delivery charge on all ebooks.

Regions without any delivery charge:

United States
United Kingdom
Australia
Canada
Europe

Regions with $2 on non-free, but free books are $0:
Asia and Pacific
India

Regions with $2 delivery charge on all ebooks:
Africa
Latin Am. & Caribbean
Middle East


[EDIT: USA never had the charge, the UK, Australia and Canada had the charge removed earlier. I think the recent change is probably the no charges for all of Europe, and the no charges on free ebooks in Asia & Pacific and India.]
