Kindle 3G question

Post by juventus101 on Fri Nov 25, 2011 3:36 pm

Uhave a very important question about the kindle 3g. Ilive in the US, and my fiancee lives in Germany. Im gonna buy her a Kindle 3g and send it to her, but I dont know if it will work in Germany. Help?

If not, would the Kindle Fire work over there?

There's definitely coverage in Germany, so it should work...

Actually, I don't think it will.
The US version seems to have just the AT&T frequency built in, which don't match Germany's ones...
A UK one would work, though :3

And I'm pretty sure the Kindle Fire only supports the Amazon App Store in the US, so it'd be pretty useless.

What about the Kindle Fire? Since its Wi-Fi it should work in Germany right? (or just about anywhere for that matter...?) Anyone know? And will the kindle-droid store and apps work?

If you get the Wi-Fi version, sure, it'll work, but she won't be able to access the Amazon App Store in Germany, because of licensing issues.

The Kindle 3G works in Germany

That being said it doesn't have a wide selection of books in German, maybe just a couple dozen.

They should work, but I'm not sure...

Long as they don't need the Appstore.
