Update: Free Web browsing on the Kindle int’l.

It's been a week since I last posted on this topic, so I thought I'd bring you an update on the browsing situation.  As you might recall from my last post, I had gotten reports from a couple members of  MobileRead Forums that they could now browse the web while in Canada.

I now have reports from Scotland, Germany, Australia, Netherlands, and France that browsing has been enabled in those countries. Given that Amazon hasn't announced a change in policy, I have to wonder if this is the result of a technical error. I don't see how it could be, though.

BTW, I did contact Amazon on this issue. I'm still waiting to hear back.

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."

  1. Is it enabled when kindle receives the OS update? Here in Spain I cannot browse anything but wikipedia. And yes, it is like the Galactic Hitchhicker, but that is not the point I guess

    • I don’t think the update enables it. One report is with the 2.3.3 firmware.

      But then again, I don’t know.
