Hey all

Does anyone know who the NZ importer for Kindle is? Who Dick Smith and all the other source them from?

Cheers

I think Dick Smith and countdown are the only places that have them and they are part of the same company. I suspect they import them themselves.
I got mine direct from Amazon and it was slightly cheaper, took about a week to arrive, and was a model not stocked here.
If you are looking to sell them maybe you should contact Amazon, although I guess you'd need an import licence.

Authorized reseller list for kindle on Amazon. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?ie=UTF8&nodeId=200589200) Seems to be Auzzie DSE and Woolworths under NZ category, since WW own DSE (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/progressive-enterprises/news/article.cfm?o_id=600624&objectid=10763694) (news that mentions kindle arrangement).

Kindle is great if you want some big corporation to have control over your purchased items

Unfortunately if you want a big range of content you have to go with a big corporate, amazon being one of them

What book can you purchase that doesn't come from a big corporation?

Most of us just want the biggest range and best price available, amazon is definitely a contender those fronts. And the kindle definitely a handy device.

If you prefer to pay more and deprive yourself of choice because you object to the supplier that's your right I guess.
