Can I mail a U.S. Amazon kindle to Spain

by beat_elite / July 24, 2011 3:38 AM PDT


So my uncle from Spain loves to read and has plenty of books, however his house is full of books and its getting crowded. I thought it would be a good gift to get him a Kindle or any type of e-reader, but I feel its cheaper to mail it to him rather than buy it in Spain.

My questions are

1. are there any international restrictions on the Kindle (is wi-fi/3G not usable outside of US, limit on what books you can buy)

2. Is it really cheaper to mail out from California

3. In spain, what websites can you use to purchase or rent E-books. Is it the same as US?

Thanks for your time

Ready? If I buy a kindle and register it to try it out, you NEVER want to lose track of it as any one that picks it up can buy books and run up quite a bill.

If there is something wrong with the Kindle, this is the ONE THING that I can't stand about this ereader.
