Amazon Kindle Store Opens In France

Amazon has just announced the opening of the French Kindle Store, offering over 35,000 French-language e-books, all 28 L’Express bestsellers, hundreds of graphic novels and over 4,000 free classics. In all language, the store will offer French customers over 825,000 titles.

The first French-language Kindle is the non-touch model just released in the U.S., available for €99.00. It offers a 600×800, 6-inch screen with 1.25GB of internal storage. The release date is October 14.

“French customers are passionate about books and reading, and just as we’ve seen in the US, UK and Germany, we believe they will love reading on Kindle,” said Greg Greeley, vice president, Amazon European Retail. “We are excited to bring our first French-language Kindle and our new Kindle store to millions of Amazon.fr customers.”

There is no “special offers” discount on this model as there is for the English version. Amazon released this new Kindle model for $79 in the U.S. with ads that display on the sleep screen. Without the ads, the U.S. version is $109.

Amazon also released the Kindle Touch and the new Kindle Fire tablet on September 28. No French release for these new models has been announced.
