Russia: Kindle

Profy reports on Amazon Kindle's “international expansion”: “This decision is obviously good at least because I personally don’t like any limitations and opening yet another window to the huge Russian market is hopefully a wise decision for Amazon. […] At the same time I myself suspect that the vast majority of the population of Russia has no idea what Kindle is at all and have never heard the name. What’s even worse, I have strong doubts that there are enough people here who would want to read their books or magazines electronically – let alone English-language titles.”
