Now that the Amazon Kindle has been made available to more than 100 countries through the EDGE / GPRS or 3G mobile networks, it becomes interesting to know the coverage of these in the world.
There they have Europe, an enviable privilege, while in the Far East India stands out for coverage, Japan, Korea and Thailand for 3G, where they do not want Obama there seems to be nothing or their connectivity does not have this kind of openness.
The following map shows the United States, with 3G coverage in many urban metropolis.
The case of the Caribbean area is curious, Costa Rica with its State telephony reflects what many people say, advanced in many things but mobile telephony there is a calamity (as in Cuba?). Then Puerto Rico is an exception.
And in South America you can see how the southern part of Brazil, Uruguay and northeastern Argentina have the highest concentration.
If this measured the development or access to connectivity it would be questionable what we see with Paraguay, Peru and Colombia.
Anyway, we'll see if the Kindle becomes popular among Hispanics, now that there is a cheaper version, which can read pdf and blogs via rss without having to pay for that access. It remains to be seen whether the facilities break down barriers such as the limited availability of content in Spanish, the quality of the reader in a loud voice with a strange accent and the little habit of reading.
