I get the same, Amazon.jp logins do not appear to be synchronised with the other sites.

Thanks. It seems that amazon.jp is the "odd one out".

No. Gift certificates are site-specific. But you can use a UK login to buy a gift certificate on amazon.com, for example (or vice versa).

I'm always glad to see another Amazon webstore option.

By the way, thanks for the link but can't read Dutch as most people so the link was not really necessary. I take your word for it.
Or you can use google translate: http://translate.google.com/translat...september.html

This is what I do if I don't understand the language of a page and want to know what is on it.

Yes but usually translators do a poor job and the result is strange to read.

Dutch is not exactly the most spoken language in the world, regardless of how nice Dutch people may be.
Deal with it and move on.

Well a debate on the use of languages in the world is worthy of its own thread don't you think ?

But quick answer, if you take into account all that speak English both natives and learners, I think English is the most spoken language in the world.

From what I understand, the shop may not open before the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013. Now maybe they are waiting to open it, in order to offer the Fire as well as the new Kindle (K6 anyone ?) in Europe at the same time. Just an idea, but until now Amazon has been very good at optimizing their PR costs and often used regional shop opening to launch new products at the same time.
Just my 2 cts...

Not sure which bands in particular you like but there are some that make their albums available through iTunes. You don't even have to change your location to Japan.

Thanks Rumpelteazer. Good news for all us benelux-ers, as far as I'm concerned the sooner the better.

Let the Amazon vs Bol war begin!
