Kindle bookstore question

Hi all,

Have pre-ordered the new kindle from Amazon. I have never had an e-reader before. I live in Ireland and ordered my kindle from the UK. (it will be dellivered to a friend in the uk).

When I go to the amazon site to buy kindle books, it redirects me to the .com site (because I live in Ireland).

Does anyone know if i'll have any problems using a uk kindle, downloading from the us site?

Thanks.

The hardware is the same, so you'll be ok, as long as you set your country to something other than UK. Sometimes it gets a bit confused otherwise.
