Kindle Touch Available in Australia… But at What Price?

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.
