I will repost what I said in another thread:

I live in Italy and less than a year ago I bought a kindle1 from a US ebayer, there are serious disadvantages in doing that:

1)I had to pay the import duty and VAT (about 20% of the final price)
2)Shipping costs were relatively high (about 50$)
3)Amazon doesn't offer digital contents from the kindle store to international customers.
4)whispernet doesn't work in Europe, there is no infrastructure for it.

I was aware of all the above points nonetheless I couldn't resist, but surely I would not recommend doing that.
