I assume Amazon has tried to get more papers, but at present newspapers with non-local readership are probably more interested in the Kindle. It would be interesting to know how many Seattle Times (say, as a representative regional newspaper) Kindle subscriptions there are and how many outside the Seattle area.

In the case of the Independent, this is a low-risk way to attract a few US readers but the real payoff will come when the Kindle is released in Britain. I am actually surprised that more UK newspapers are not signing up - but perhaps they have well established internet-based alternatives.
