CORP TALK: Once limited only to the US market, the Amazon Kindle DX e-book reader is now available online and can be shipped to more than 100 countries, including HWM countries Philippines and Thailand (strangely enough, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia have been left out, but not Hong Kong and Vietnam).
Similarly, the original 6″ display Kindle is also available for shipping to these countries (at US$259).
The Kindle DX wireless reading device costs US$489 and has a 9.7″ display screen (2.5 times larger than the original Kindle).
Amazon.com will take pre-orders from Wednesday (6 January 2010) and shipping to the 100+ countries starts January 19. There are currently 300,000 electronic books available for the Kindle device.
