There are multiple reports this morning that Amazon is finally selling the Kindle in Canada. The device comes with wireless downloads, which suggests that a deal has been struck with a Canadian carrier. But which one?
The Globe reports that the delayed availability of the Amazon Kindle in Canada is due to ongoing negotiations between Amazon and the three wireless providers.
Amazon has announced that the Kindle e-book reader is now available in 100 countries, but not Canada. It would be interesting to know the reason why, though my guess is the lack of a deal with a telecom carrier for wireless downloads.
