Kindle expanding to more than 100 countries

According to a Reuters report, Amazon’s e-reader, the Kindle, will now be sold in a further 100+ countries, including China.

While significant for the digital book market, the move is also of interest to publishers investing in e-editions or e-reading technologies.

Many high profile newspapers are available on a Kindle: the Financial Times, Times, Daily Mail and USA Today to name but a few.

This expansion could see new news clients for Amazon; potentially more Kindle-specific editions from publishers, such as that launched by Tribune Co.

A wider Kindle audience worldwide could also help publishers build their reach and possible revenue streams.
