About time. I'm in the US, but have a few friends in Canada that have been chomping at the bit for this.

This is a bit strange... "The Spire" is available in Canada as an ebook through Sony's Ebookstore. I bought it a few months ago when I had a PRS-505.

But now the Kindle version of The Spire is not available in Canada due to "copyright restrictions". I would think the same laws/restrictions would apply to both versions of the ebook.

That is a bit nuts. Sometimes I think it is a strange mess of licensing agreements but other times it's simply Amazon's system not updating book availability I think.

From Wikipedia:

Bouvet Island (Norwegian: Bouvetøya) is an uninhabited Antarctic volcanic island in the South Atlantic Ocean, 2525 km[1] south-southwest of South Africa. It is a dependent territory (Norwegian: biland) of Norway and is not subject to the Antarctic Treaty. It is the most remote island in the world.
So they got the Kindle before us?? Sheesh.

Still, Yay!

Who needs and ebook reader more than the most remote island in the world?

I wonder what the weather is like there. I need a vacation.

Hooray for Canadians!

Hope Amazon releases the Kindle in my country (South Korea) soon...

I mean, the wireless coverage map shows 100% Whispernet coverage across the whole country! So, just release it already!

It's a shame that the delay with the kindle wasn't so that they could launch a proper version in canada, it would have been a clear sign that amazon weren't happy to just sit back after implementing their current system of approved grey importing and roaming data.
