Will Amazon Kindle Finally Arrive in the U.K.?

Left_hand_2.gifYears after a successful launch in the United States, Amazon.com (AMZN) reportedly will bring the Kindle to U.K. readers.

While no one would confirm the news on the record, Bookseller reports that unidentified sources predict an Amazon announcement about the U.K. Kindle next week. The company had been working on a wireless setup for the device, but the source claimed the announcement would be ready before the Frankfurt Book Fair in mid-October.

Here’s more from the article: “One source told The Bookseller: “The key things they needed to tie up have been tied up. The rumours I’ve heard are all saying next week…I’ve heard it from multiple reliable sources. I think they want to avoid the general kerfuffle of Frankfurt.” (Via Sarah Weinman)
