Kindle Paperwhite preorders open for October 25 UK, France & Germany release
Kindle Paperwhite has gone up for preorder within the UK, Germany, and France, with both WiFi-only and 3G versions of the illuminated ereader making their debut outside of the united states. Shipping from October 25, the brand new ereader uses E Ink’s latest e-paper display complete with a front-lighting system which makes the Kindle’s screen visible in low-light conditions without the glare of a normal LCD or AMOLED tablet.
In the united kingdom, the Kindle Paperwhite is priced at £109 for the WiFi-only model, and £169 for the WiFi+3G version which lets you download ebooks outside of wireless hotspots. In France and Germany, meanwhile, both models are priced at “129 and “189 respectively.
Amazon is limiting orders to 2 per shopper, and insist for the Paperwhite may be strong. Sales within the US quickly saw shipping estimates stretch out to 4-6 weeks, and the addition of Amazon’s Kindle Owners’ Lending Library within the UK, Germany, and France later this month will only increase attention at the new ereader.
