Kindle eReader and ebooks enter French Market

Last Friday Amazon.fr started to sell the new Kindle for only 99 Euros. This is the same Kindle model as the Kindle 4 on Amazon.com. Amazon.fr will begin shipping the Kindles today, Friday, October 14. The French Kindle is a wi-fi model.

New Market Opens Up for Authors

 

France has a strong market for ebook readers; Bookeen makes the popular Linux based Cybook ebook reader line, which can read EPUB files. The Kindle is able to read PDF and Mobi files, but not the almost universal EPUB file format.

Amazon is opening up Kindle Direct Publishing for Amazon.fr, so authors and independent publishers can publish Kindle ebooks for French customers.
