I bet you haven’t noticed, but Amazon started shipping the Kindle Touch outside the US some time in the past few days. They’re keeping it very low key at the moment, but my competition discovered that the product page for the Kindle Touch Wifi has been updated.
Amazon now offers country-specific info for the Kindle Touch, just like they do with the Kindle DX, K3, and K4. Curiously enough, only the Kindle Touch Wifi is showing the info, not the 3G model. The country listings include Spain, Germany, and the UK, and that raises curious question about the local Kindle Stores. I’ve checked the UK and Germany sites, and the Kindle Touch is still not listed.
Update: I have confirmation from my pr contact with Amazon. It’s happened. They really decide to start shipping the Kindle Touch outside the US.
Absent an announcement, I’m going to assume that this might be an error. Amazon usually makes a big deal of their expansions, and this one occurred with nary a firework. I’ve queried Amazon and I’m waiting to hear from them. I will update with their response.
