Kindle will be launched in Germany shortly
Amazon announced today that the KiIndle II will be made available for the German market.
Although, the device needs to be ordered in the US and customs charges will apply, the whispernet will work in Europe.
I have a DX and I am quite happy with it. I travel to the states quite frequently and can update there. However, does anyone know whether the Kindle for Germany will be an amended version against the US-version?
Is there any chance, that my DX will be supported through whispernet in Germany?

The "Kindle with global wireless" uses a different wireless module than the standard Kindle and Kindle DX:
I have seen reports that the KDX will be available globally next year, presumably with this same AT&T wireless module.
