- that's $315, more than twice the original price! And that does NOT yet include customs & VAT, which will be charged on top and could be expected to be another 50€ or more.
Lucky are those who have friends in the US who are not trying to rip them off
haha, still lucky you guys. If I were to import a kindle, I'd pay roughly the same price of the product just for the import fee. $69 is just too damn good to be true. For this price I'd guess all americans would drop all games, iPhone fart apps and TV just to be reading on it like there's no tomorrow...
but Amazon is set to get here next year, along with the Kobo guys. I can live with an iriver Story for that long.
