Amazon's been releasing models late (or not at all) in Canada for that long? For e-ink e-readers? I know they've skipped us for the Paperwhite, and that we never got the Kindle Touch 3G (though we did, eventually, get the Wifi-only version the year following its U.S. release). The rest are before my time hanging out in the forums here (I followed them, but only peripherally). Were there significant delays in previous e-ink models too? Or are you including both the first and second-gen Kindle Fire models, neither of which have been released in Canada yet?
