First look at the Amazon.fr Kindle Store
Earlier today I showed you a couple of product pages for Kindle ebooks on Amazon.fr. Now I can show you something even better.
Merrill Goussot, the editor of Le Journal du Kindle, sent me a screen shot (at right) and a link. Part of the Kindle Store is up and running right now. Well, it’s up at the moment. You can’t actually do anything because none of the product pages are available.
To be honest, the screen shot doesn’t really tell us anything we didn’t know. The French Kindle Store is going to look like the US, UK, and German Kindle Stores. But if this page reflects the prices accurately, the French Kindle Store will have higher prices than the German one.
And it does give us one more piece of info that confirms the rumor I posted a couple weeks back. The CEO of Hachette Livre is rumored to have dropped a few hints
in following a radio interview. I’m told that he said a new Kindle was coming to France on 8 October, but it’s clear now that he was referring to the Kindle Store.
Should the new Kindle Store open 18 days from now, it will be Amazon’s 3rd local Kindle Store, following Germany and the UK.
