Will a Kindle work in Australia and on the plane over there?

It will work in that you can read things you have already downloaded. I believe that you cannot download outside of the US. It will be great for the plane!

If you mean you are just visiting and you still have a us credit card on your account, you can download to a computer and move the book over by USB cable while outside the US.

If I purchase a kindle in Australia as a gift for someone living in Isarel will it work in Israel definitely?

Thanks

So if I am moving to Germany for several years and plan on keeping a US credit card active, will I still be able to buy and download books?

I live in Australia. I have 2 Kindles - a large one with a key board and a small one to take to the doctor's waiting room - slips in my bag easily. I download from Amazon using an Australian, but Visa credit card. No problem. I read on the plane. You can download overseas.

I was in the Phlippines for 3 months, I had no problems downloading from there. Sometimes the download times are a little slower, but I did always get them.

I forgot to add that for Australia, the Kindles come with a USB cable each and you recharge them from your computer: desk top or lap top.

Actually, you can get a power adaptor for $10 that you can plug the USB cord into, so that you can charge it without a computer, here's a link if anyone's interested: Amazon Kindle AU (Type I) Power Adapter (Kindle, Kindle Touch, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle DX)
