So Amazon has finally released the new Kindle Fire HDXs internationally, including Canada. It will ship in late November. While it’s great that we only had to wait a month after our US cousins, I did notice however that one of the major new innovations for the HDX is not available in Canada – there is no mention of the MayDay button… MayDay is available in the UK. Presumably the French language requirement is preventing its being available in Canada.
There are still no movies available to Canadians, no Kindle Owners’ Lending Library and no Kindle Freetime, which is now being offered to other international purchasers. Still at least we Canadians now have the opportunity to check out the device. I will, of course, report back on it once I receive it.
