Amazon Launches Kindle Store in Mexico

kindle store mexicoAmazon has just opened a new branch of the Kindle Store.They're no longer content with selling Spanish language ebooks via Amazon.com and Amazon.es, so today they opened a new Kindle Store at Amazon.com.mx.

The new branch of the Kindle Store stocks over 2 million titles including 70 thousand titles in Spanish, Nahuatl, and other languages indigenous to Mexico. Amazon is also selling the Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite locally with prices starting at 1,399 Mexican pesos ($105 USD) for the basic Kindle and 2,399 Mexican pesos ($180 USD) for the Kindle Paperwhite.

That catalog of 70,000 titles is somewhat larger than the selection Amazon offers on Amazon.com, and it is also greater than the 60,000 Spanish language titles claimed by Argentina-based BajaLibros. Aside from iBooks, that ebookseller (which recently expanded into the US market) is probably Amazon's strongest competitor in the Mexican ebook market.

In addition to the new ebookstore, there's also a new branch of KDP for Mexican authors and publishers (here).

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."
