So Why is Amazon Kindle Marooned in the US?
Why is it taking so long fro Fortress Amazon to spread its K2 into Europe or eveb Canada? Terrirorial rights will not be an issue, or not one that Amazon hasn’t dealt with in the physical book world.
Amazon is widely reported as working exclusively with Sprint’s mobile network but now it is reported that they actually signed up with one of Sprint’s MVNO’s Jasper Wireless who specialise in machine to machine cellular. The technology is obviously a US winner but not quite so outside the US. Could it be the strongest selling point, its ability to download files direct onto the K1 and K2 is in fact its biggest weakness?
