Amazon today (24th January) launches its Kindle range in Canada, the e-reading heartland of Canada-founded Kobo.
Amazon will launch its latest Kindle model, the Kindle Paperwhite, in Canada and open a Kindle store, which it says has over 1.5m books including over 250,000 exclusive books and 50,000 French titles.
Dave Limp, vice-president, Amazon Kindle, said: "We're excited to make the best-selling and most advanced e-readers in the world available to our Amazon.ca customers for the first time, making it easier and more affordable than ever for Canadian readers to own a Kindle."
