Kindle 2 now ships to Canadians

Amazon today gave the green light to selling the Kindle 2 in Canada. The reader is the same international version sold elsewhere and will give Canadians the same access to the Kindle bookstore as Americans. Some Canadian publications, such as the Globe and Mail and the Ottawa Citizen, are also available in subscription form for the e-book reader.

The reader costs the same $259 US ($271 Canadian) as before, though it's unclear whether Canadians will pay a premium for downloads. US customers leaving their own country pay an extra $2 US to individual book downloads, $5 for monthly subscriptions, and 99 cents for each megabyte of documents converted online. Browsing the Kindle store or using the experimental web browser remains free.
