Amazon can't provide any content (movies, music, app) for most other countries at this time, so they're not selling the device in those countries.

Edit: Just found this info on another post:

"Q: When will these new devices be available outside of the US?
A: The new Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD will be available on Amazon's international sites in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and France later this year. For more information about international availability, please visit the Amazon site for your country."

It does state "later this year." There's still a few weeks in the year. LOL!

(or did you mean that residents of Belgium couldn't purchase one from Amazon.fr? I thought as much.)

CBRetriever says:
no, that later this year referenced the November shipment from the other stores - didn't they ship in October in the US?

and yes, it's odd that some countries can get kindle books, but not kindles from certain Kindle Stores (Belgium, Switzerland, Monaco, Austria and a few smaller countries)

Your guess is as good as anyone else can give you.

CBRetriever says:
especially since those are only available in the US - they aren't available in any of the other Kindle Stores

don't you think that this is a violation of free circulation in the EU?
I think the European Commission should monitor this absurd behaviour

being that at the time of those posts (late 2012) Kindle Fires weren't shipped worldwide and they now are, I doubt theyd be interested

but, if you want to complain to them, please add my inability to get certain lingerie shipped from the UK to France and a Pet Product shipped from amazon.de to France to your list of restricted items
