I just had a frustrating experience of thinking I could purchase a Paperwhite for delivery in Canada only to be informed at the end of the purchase process, at the shipping stage, it was not available for shipment to Canada

If they can't their act together for Canada, I will to get an iPad mini. Pay for ads removal and added cost for Canada and I may just as we'll get the iPad.

It normally takes 3-5 months after the US release before new Kindles are released for international shipping. The Touch took 5 monhts.

They are having enough problems trying to get the pre orders shipped for the US market, at the moment if you order one it won't be shipped until end of Nov or begining of Dec.

I highly doubt they will have enough for the holiday season this year as it is.

Could Canadians have a friend in the US place the order and then send it on to Canada?

Chief, many people have done that or slipped across the border and picked one up.

The only issue you will have (since this is not the Fire) is warranty repairs. For a warranty repair, Amazon will only ship the replacement to the areas that it sells the product. You would have to pay to return your defective Kindle to the US and they would then forward it to Amazon.

Thank you, I see where if there is a problem it could me more trouble than it is worth. It was only a thought. Just trying to help out friends from the great white north.

I know what you mean but knowledge allows you to make the best decision.

That's just simply not true. Paperwhite is now available in a lot of European countries, UK, Germany, etc.

Do Candadians have friends in the U.S.? I live in Mexico and am having a Paperwhite brought to me in January.

Oh okay, so about 1% of the population...

Yeah- that's what I did- I also got myself Amazon Prime which isn't available here. Lame. But I'm pretty happy- It's going to ship there Friday this week. He's going to send it to me, and I'm going to get it Express mail, because I've waited so long for this thing already. I ordered it last month. I'm going to pay shipping fees.

Here in Canada, we don't have the option of getting the cheaper ad-supported model, because all the ads are for the US only.

Samantha, did you really look at what Prime will give you in Canada? To get the video streaming you have to be located in the US (Amazon goes by IP address). The shipping is only for continental US only. The apps you can purchase with a US credit card. The apps "call home" every so often, etc. I'm really not sure what benefit you will get from Prime, but, of course, that is your decision.
