Kindle For Aussies, anyone?

Being a non-US resident is really one hell of a headache when purchasing electronics that are exclusively manufactured and sold on the United States. The tendency of some is to purchase from someone from their country who order by bulk or wholesale, to be then sold in retails. But you should beware, always.

Amazon Kindle, if didn't know what it is, is an e-book reader by Amazon, Inc. 

Here is a little history:

On November 2007, the first generation Kindle was released. 
It can store approximately 200 non-illustrated titles.

The second version was released on February 2009. It is way thinner and lightweight than the first one. It can store about 1500 non-illustrated titles.

Then on January 2010 came Kindle DX - the thinnest of all the Kindles on earth. It can open PDF files and has a larger screen.

Then came Kindle 3 - the version that came with Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi plus 3G capabilities.

As I said, there are retailers out there waiting for customers to devour. I'm not saying that all of them have evil plans - some add their profit to the price (of course, it's business!), but some overprice them. 

On the other hand, purchasing directly from the store can be confusing. You'll start searching for the international version, then what's the next step?

If you are from Australia and you are looking to buy for a Kindle, I suggest you to check out eBook Readers - Australia. The site is complete with guides on how to purchase a Kindle when you are residing in Australia. Plus, Kindle reviews, and comparison of prices and features of the Kindle versions.

Happy Kindle shopping!
