I'm planning on getting a JP Paperwhite since it has more memory than the US version, but is there any other difference besides that? I know you can set the UI in english but will I be unable to access the US store, US ebooks wont work, etc?

I understand the 3G is Japan only

In my opinion, extra memory is not worth the hassle. Buy a 3G version of "regular" PW and you will have constant access to the Cloud with unlimited storage. Even if you read mostly Manga or other graphics-intensive content (the rationale behind larger memory on the model for Japan), "regular" memory will fit hundreds of titles.

Dragi, from some of the complaints from those who bought 3G kindles in Japan, the 3G won't work outside Japan

Yes, I meant "normal" model with 3G, so that relatively low storage is not an issue. I clarified in my post - thanks.

So outside of the 3G, (I was going to get the wifi version anyways) it behaves exactly the same? Wonderful.

I was doing a bit of research and heard that the JP PW can't access the US store, is this true?

Abaj, where are you going to buy it?
I'm also planning to buy one in order to replace my km 3rd generation.

Thank you
