In other news, Amazon releases a Spanish Kindle and an Italian Kindle.

Kindle Spain and Kindle Italy are here

Amazon has sent out two separate and almost identical press releases -

  1. Kindle Spain is available on Amazon Spain for 99 Euros.
  2. There is a Spanish Kindle Store with 22,000 spanish language Kindle Books. There are also 20 of the Top 30 bestsellers.
  3. Kindle Italy is not available on Amazon Italy for 99 Euros.
  4. There are 16,000 Italian language kindle books.

It’s interesting that only the Kindle 4 (the one with neither keyboard nor touch) is available internationally yet. The fact that touch Kindle doesn’t have the international keyboard suggests that either Amazon doesn’t plan to release it worldwide anytime soon, or that there is another Kindle (perhaps a Mirasol Kindle) on the way.
