I am from bangladesh and want to buy Kindle Paperwhite. But I want to make sure that the Bengali / Bangla pdf ebook can read using the Kindle paperwhite. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

Debabrata - Unfortunately, Amazon is currently unable to ship Kindles or offer Kindle content in Bangladesh.

Here is the international Paperwhite page. Look in the dropdown box for confirmation.

Kindle Paperwhite, 6" High Resolution Display with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi [Previous Generation]

Also, here's what it says about language support:

Global Language Support:
Kindle Paperwhite supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in your favorite language, including enhanced support for Japanese and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). Kindle Paperwhite also displays Korean, Cyrillic, Latin, and Greek scripts, and provides free access to several international dictionaries.

To add, any Kindle will display unconverted PDF files in any language and script, as long as they have embedded fonts. The type will usually be too small on 6" devices, though...

Hi All, I am planning to buy Kindle paperwhite from the US and use it in Bangladesh? Is Kindle cannot be used in Bangladesh (with the current net speed) or the it is difficult to download books in Bangladesh?

Pls suggest. thanks. M

it's that Amazon won't ship kindles to Bangladesh and won't sell kindle books there (usually it's because they've been unable to obtain permission to do so)

Hello, I just bought a Bengali Kindle book. I am trying to read it my Android phone with kindle apps. But the font is not showing properly. Is there any way to fix it?

While an excellent device, the Kindle is not the best one for reading PRF format.

One of the kindle fire HDX machines would be better for reading pdf files.

Hi, I find only two bengali books to download for kindle. Is there any progress in this topic. Eager to read bengali books in kindle

I have a few Bangla books that I bought on Amazon's Kindle store (such as Urukku, by Nasrin Jahan, and Chander Pahar, by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay ) and they display properly in the Paperwhite and the Voyage.

However, they do not display correctly in the Kindle for PC.

The paperwhite and Voyage can only display e-Books in the MOBI format (this is the more common kind of e-Book in the Kindle store). Paperwhite and Voyage can not display PDF type e-Books.

Dragi Raos, this is not correct. The Kindle paperwhite and voyage can not display a PDF file.

It is you who is not correct. This is from the Paperwhite product page:

Content Formats Supported Kindle Format 8 (AZW3), Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively; HTML, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP through conversion

I don't know anything about the voyage, I can't even find one at the big box stores to test drive, the trials of small town life, but I do own a paperwhite, and it does display a pdf, just fine. I imagine that the voyage does, too, but I am not certain.

Wrong. I have about 30 pdfs on my Paperwhite and can read them just fine.
