have announced that the , the larger brother to the will now be available in a Global Wireless edition, working in the UK. With it’s 9.7″ screen (compared to the 6″ screen of the standard ), it offers a much larger display for viewing eBooks. Available for Pre-Order today (it will start ship in a couple of weeks time), however there is one slight downside; the price is $489 (compared to $259 for the ); which puts the UK price, including VAT & Customs, approaching £400, which maybe a little too expensive for some.
It’s good to seesupporting a range of devices for the UK market though. Don’t forget, only ship with a US power adaptor in the box, and although the device will charge from your computer via USB, if you want to charge it directly, you’ll need to buy a microUSB charging cable (see from ).
