Amazon launches Canadian Kindle store

Amazon has launched a Canadian Kindle store, offering Kindle ebooks direct to Canadian customers for the first time (rather than making them go through the .com site). The move hasn’t yet been mentioned in a press release, but the new store seems to have gone live some time in the past twenty-four hours.

Kindles aren’t new to Canada, but the absence of a dedicated retail site has been a long time coming. The Canadian store isn’t actually selling Kindles itself, but is instead taking customers to a .com site; ebooks, though, are being offered by the Canadian site, which means Canadian customers can now get books priced in their local currency. So far, the site seems to be adopting the approach that $1 Canadian equals $1 US, which isn’t quite right but close enough.

Amazon has been busy adding new stores over the past month, including the recent Brazilian store plus the troubled Indian site. The next obvious locations would be Australia and China, both of which have been rumoured for quite some time.
