Amazon Launches Kindle In France

Online retailing giant Amazon has launched the Kindle Device and ebook store in France.

The newest Kindle eInk reader is available there for €99 but the company does not seem to have made the new touch screen Kindles or the Kindle Fire available to French customers.

The launch marks the fourth distinct Kindle store with stores having opened previous in Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Yesterday Google launched its own ebook service in the United Kingdom and last week Apple finally rolled out its iBooks service to Ireland and several other European markets.
