BTW, if you're not in Canada and want to see the flyer, you can use L7J 1A1 as a valid postal code. (They're anal about requiring postal codes.)

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

4 Comments on Staples now carrying the Amazon Kindle in Canada

  1. The Source (Used to be owned by Circuit City) and is now owned by BELL (Telecoms/Media) company. Best Buy owns Future Shop.

  2. The Source has the 3G for $209 whereas Staples is $229.

  3. I have just been to 3 staples in Toronto seaching for the kindle. I can confirm that none of them have the kindle in stock.. and they don’t know when it will be available. Its cheaper to buy it online anyway, i just wanted to save some waiting time.

  4. I got a Kindle Fire last year for Christmas and was really upset to find that I cant get either movies or videos on it. Neither does the public libraries in Nova Scotia link to it. What is the problem? Is it the government here or Amazon protecting its sales?
