Media Markt Netherlands sells Kindles

Media Markt Netherlands sells Kindles

Electronics chain Media Markt will now also sell Amazon's e-reader Kindle in the Netherlands. It will be the first time Amazon's e-reader is available in a physical store in the Netherlands.

Larger audience

It comes as no surprise that Amazon has attracted a Dutch partner for its e-reader as the company has already launched amazon.nl, which focuses on e-books at the moment. Media Markt, currently an exclusive partner, immediately gives Amazon a larger audience.

 

The cheapest Kindle e-reader costs 79 euro, while its more expensive models range up to 189 euro. Kindle Tablets are currently not available in the Netherlands, so customers on the lookout for those will still have to look online.
