  1. I’d buy a Kindle DX if it were available in Japan.
    Sony discontinued its eReaders here.
    So I’m using a BeBook until Kindle comes to Amazon Japan.

    • I hope that happens soon. this means Amazon will have to address the language issue and international wireless access.

      For now though, you can still get one if you plan to read in English.
      Even thhough you won’t have wireless access to content, you can still download content directly from Amazon with the USB cable.
