Kindle Touch to hit shelves in Europe

Amazon’s Kindle Touch e-reader is on its way to Europe, where it will go on sale April 27, the BBC reported yesterday.

The device will be available in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, as Amazon has a Kindle store in each of these countries. The wi-fi version will be priced at £109, and the device with both wi-fi and 3G connectivity will be sold for £160. Amazon began taking orders for the device today.

However, Amazon is not offering a cheaper ad-supported version in Europe, All Things D noted. The version it is offering will not support the Kindle lending library either.

The Kindle Touch 3G is now also available in seven languages: German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and American or British English, Amazon stated in a press release.

The Kindle Touch launched in the United States five months ago.
