This should come as welcome news to anyone based in Western Europe who’s been planing on buying a Paperwhite, but hasn’t actually placed an order for the device through Amazon. According to The Bookseller post, “Amazon.co.uk has told customers that orders placed today for the Paperwhite model would not be expected to ship until the week of [November 12] ‘due to popular demand’ [for the device].” According to a Waterstones rep, the standard Paperwhite model will be retailing in its stores for £109 (USD $175), while the Paperwhite model with Wi-Fi and 3G will be priced at £169 (USD $272).
Also, both the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tablets will be available at Waterstones’ brick-and-mortar locations on October 25, “corresponding with the general UK release date,” the Bookseller reports. “The Fire and Fire HD will be sold for £129 [USD $208] and £159 [USD $256] respectively.”
