Amazon opens India Kindle Store

PanARMENIAN.Net - Amazon is set to address the world’s second-largest English-speaking population, expanding its Kindle ebook operation to India, according to The Verge.

The India Kindle Store opened Aug 22 with over one million books (priced in rupees), making it the biggest ebook store in the country.

Amazon released its Kindle e-reader in India as well, making the devices available at Croma retail stores across the country for 6,999 rupees, or about $126.

In contrast to the apparent smoothness of this most recent expansion, Amazon appears to be having trouble getting its e-readers out the door in Japan. A page that reads "coming soon" has been in place on the Amazon Japan site since the end of June, The Verge says.
