Kindle Touch Available in Australia… But at What Price?

{ 1 comment }

At this point in time Amazon will only ship the Kindle Touch WiFi to Australia.  Up for preorder now on both BigW and Dick Smith is the Touch WiFi for $185AU for release on March 5th and the Touch 3G for  $249AU for release on the 13th of March.

The only question I’ve got is why ? To grab a Touch WiFi direct from Amazon is only $150.98US shipped, which is even less in $AU with the Aussie Dollar so high at the moment.  I suppose it’s for those people who aren’t internet savvy or don’t like buying online and would rather support local suppliers. The $30AU+ difference could certainly purchases a few Kindle Books 🙂

    This is stupid! It just goes to show you that they have to copy B&N to the T. They don’t even have to list performance reports to their stock holders like B&N has too so why put faith in a company like that? for $99 you can get the B&N touch nook which is almost exactly like this one.
