Given the way it's tightly integrated with Amazon Prime and Amazon's movie platform I think it'll be a while before it appears in Europe . Amazon's not going to sell it in territories where it can't make money selling content to use on it.

Yes. Web page says "US only". No surprises there.

I had no desire to buy a 7" inch tablet, but at $200 and access to the web through Whispernet I may just to have to rethink that stance.

One notable omission in all this is any hint of a replacement for the Kindle DX. That fits in with what I'd assumed - that the DX was intended to be a college textbook device, and Amazon's experiments in that area have been deemed to be a failure.

That's pretty much what I've been hoping for, especially if they keep the price in the 100-120 € region.
Looking at the prices of the current ones on the UK and American sites, it seems more likely to be 120 - 140 region, still a good price though.

I hope so. But not all the tablet manufacturers can sell stuff on tablets. So I am not sure how low the tablet prices can go.

No side buttons. The touch appears to have no buttons of any sort.

Hmm...maybe I'll get a K3 before they are gone then. I love the side button on the edge for turning pages on my K1.

And no mention of a card slot for expanded local storage. They really want you in the cloud, which will be free for their content. Hmmm...
