Amazon looking to launch Kindle in the UK


by David Allen

The Kindle is Amazon’s version of an e-book reader with bells on.

However, this device has not been available in the UK, although that is not because the online retailer hasn’t tried.

Amazon, according to mobiletoday.co.uk, is very keen to get the device into the UK and supposedly is in advanced negotiations, although there is nothing firm yet.

The sticking point for the Amazon Kindle is the fact that there is no deal with a mobile operator yet, which is essential for the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) that the Kindle uses.

The use of wireless mobile data is what makes the Kindle an exciting product.

The device is able to download e-books and RSS feeds while the user is on the move.
