Light blue where I live.
Dark blue where I work, but to gain access to the store I have to enable wireless.

IIRC it is an O2 provisioned service. So pretty much if an O2 moby works then your kindle will work.
No, Amazon use Vodafone in the UK.

Vodafone claim the same as O2,
Slow where I live, fast where I work.
Still nada.

Oh and amazon.co.uk's help pages:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/cust...04420#coverage
links to:
http://client0.cellmaps.com/viewer.html?cov=2&view=intl

Which is obviously the same as the O2 map linked above.

Oh and it looks like they've discontinued it:

"Currently Unavailable" probably just means "out of stock". It's happened before.

Yup, and they are not only "out of stock" in the US, they don't even get an honorable mention in the Kindle Store.

You K5 owners how own a piece of computer history.

The reason I doubt they're discontinued is that the Touch is still being sold in all the Kindle stores outside the US. I may of course be wrong - time will tell .

@HarryT: The Touch 3G has disappeared from Amazon.fr, and seems to be out-of-stock/unreachable in other localized KS. (But the wifi version, yup, still there & in stock).

Could be. I can't even find a placeholder for the K5 on the U.S. site. I don't even see where the refurbs are being sold...they should be somewhere.

Here's where to buy them in Germany

Here's a link for those of you in Germany (or all of EU?) who want to buy one:
http://www.mexxbooks.de/ereader-buch...preisgestutzt/

It's not totally clear from the description, but since there is no mention of SO, the devices are likely to be regular (non-SO) ones. I had bought my current Kindle Touch (with SO, and that was clearly stated) from Mexxbooks in November 2011 without much trouble (except for a rather long wait for it to be shipped because of capacity issues), so I personally recommend them. And the prices are fair.

There are no strings attached, except that you agree that they may send you a weekly newsletter for the duration of one year (though I never received one ). This is not a huge company, but rather a bunch of enthusiasts, so I don't know how well they can cater for non-german speaking folks, or whether they ship to other countries. It's probably easiest to just send them an e-mail and ask.

Edit: Note that the offer is currently limited until tomorrow, September 15 (or as long as "supplies" last, whichever comes first).

And why, oh why, did Amazon get everybody exited with pictures of the kindle fires on thier website and then write in small print right at the bottom of the webpage "coming in october."

WHAT IS THE POINT OF ADVERTISING A KINDLE IN YOUR FACE WHENEVER YOU GO ON THE AMAZON WEBSITE IF THEY'RE ONLY GOING TO RELEASE IT IN AMERICA DON'T THEY REALISE THAT THEY MIGHY GET MORE SALES IF THEY SELL IT ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE THEY STUPID

Yes, I am talking to the director of prattiness at Amazon.
