  1. Hi, actually the German Amazon store has been advertising a German-language Kindle for 99 euros for a couple of days now. In the fine print at the bottom of the page comparing the different device versions, it says the “Kindle” (as opposed to what it calls the “Kindle Keyboard” models – interesting switch of terminology) is available with menus in German, English (US, UK), French, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese (Brazil).

    1. As Diane B. said Amazon Kindle Store for amazon.de launched in April.

      Anyhow its a great news for French readers.

      In my case looking forward to the announcement by Amazon the moment they do the same for the recently launched Amazon Spain.

  2. Has anyone tried the Kindle French/English dictionary for reading French books? I really would like to get a good review of one, and not just an Amazon review. I think I would be more interested in reading French books if I knew there was a good dictionary for times when I don’t understand a word or phrase.
