Thanks Tyson. Here's hoping that things come our way. We have both Borders and Dymocks in NZ (destroying the local booksellers but there's another story) so it should be a possibility. But the problems are still selection and price ... Many titles are simply not available down this way (geo restrictions) and I don't quite see why I should pay more for an Australian edition of an ebook than a US version ...
(By the way, many of us here in NZ do have broadband ... Some of us even have cable broadband!)
