The Amazon Kindle Touch is the company’s first touchscreen e-ink based reader and has reaped a ton of success in the North American Market. One of the drawbacks thus far has been the exclusive focus of the USA, but not for much longer. Starting April 27th, it will make the trek across the pond to Europe. You will be able to buy it direct from Amazon in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy! After six months of being a North American exclusive, it is refreshing to see it finally hit Europe.
The Kindle Touch has many different models out there right now, and Europe will be getting both the Kindle Touch WIFI and the Kindle Touch 3G. Prices are fairly determinate on what region you are in but the WIFI model in the UK will cost £109 while the 3G will be £169. If you can’t wait until April, you can buy all models of the Kindle Touch from Shop e-Readers.
