Amazon finally launches in Australia

Online
You waited patiently and finally the day has come. Amazon has launched in Australia. The site went live on Tuesday morning with thousands of products on offer over 23 categories including cameras, electronics. PCs, software, and video games. Amazon's Kindle lineup is also there as well as it's Fire TV streaming stick which plugs straight into your TV for streaming services like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. Anticipation around the local launch has been mounting for around a year now. The company confirmed it would be coming down under in April but it was quietly hiring staff for its Amazon fresh grocery delivery service from January. There's still no word on Amazon fresh but we now know Amazons Echo speakers and Alexis smart assistance will be coming in early 2018. It's the 13th market for Amazon and the service is already massive overseas, offering everything from two-hour delivery to unlimited music streaming, even the option to order groceries with the press of a button. Amazon Music unlimited is coming early next year but Ozis will have to wait for two hour delivery. Amazon prime is coming in mid 2019 but we still dont know how much the subscription shipping service will cost or how quick the shipping will be. For now, the big cities have it best. There is next business day delivery to the ace coast capitals plus satellite for ten dollars and two day delivery to perv. For everyone else, free shipping is available Australia wide on orders over $49. Though, you'll have to wait a little longer. So is Amazon going to change the world? Or is it just another way for you to spend your hard earned dough? Let us know in the comments below. I'm Claire Reilly for CNet. Happy shopping.
