UK prices starting at £229 for 16GB with special offers, which is pretty close to a USD->GBP + VAT conversion.
No sign of a cellular version.

It's getting harder for me to resist buying one of these.

When Amazon had a $50 off sale shortly after Black Friday, I grabbed a 16GB for $249. It's a fantastic device for videos. Since I only use it for streaming, 16GB is more than enough storage for me.

Well, that unfortunately will probably mean that there is not much market share left for the B&N Nook tablets in Europe. B&N once again has waited too long.
Perhaps if they open up their tablets and add the Google play store they might have still a chance in Europe?

Does anyone know of a good comics (cbr/cbz) reader on the amazon appstore?

The size of this larger kindle seems a good compromise between the 7" models that are a little smaller than I would like at times and the 10.1" w/s tablets that are fairly horrible to use in portrait mode.

You could try Perfect Viewer: http://www.amazon.com/RookieStudio-P.../dp/B005XN0SGU
ACV doesn't seem to be available on the Amazon store.
ComiCat seems to get good reviews, but I haven't used it: http://www.amazon.com/Meanlabs-Softw.../dp/B004UBB1HQ

Oh, I have to stay off this site!! I just ordered the 8.9. I have a Samsung, but it doesn't have the graphic novel feature the Fire does. I absolutely love reading the Walking Dead novels where each panel pops out. It will be great for magazines, too.
