Amazon has begun selling the Kindle Paperwhite, an eReader with a built-in front light, in Canada. Canadian consumers can purchase the devices from Amazon.ca and Staples for CDN$89.
Amazon also announced that the Canada Kindle Store is now available directly on the Kindle. The store carries more than 1.5 million eBooks, including more than 250,000 exclusive books and 50,000 French-language titles.
“E-readers have found their place in today’s digital lifestyle by providing users with a unique reading experience,” stated Mark Shanahan, senior technology merchant at Staples Canada. “Our goal is to help people choose a device that’s right for them by offering a broad selection of popular e-readers like the Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite in one convenient place, making it easy for customers to see, touch, and try the product.”
