Kindle expands to other Latin languages

Launch in 2007, this electronic device (e-book reader) was made available to the Latin-American audience in October 2009 but only in English, German and French.

Last week it was revealed that authors and publishers can use the Kindle Digital Text Platform (DTP) to provide content in three other languages namely, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. Indeed, good news for Hispanic writers and their readers.

I can't wait to read 'La Isla bajo el mar' (the island beneath the sea) by Isabel Allende...but, I guess I need to get one Kindle first!
