Amazon has launched the Brazil Kindle Store (www.amazon.com.br) with the largest selection of the most popular books, including the most Veja best sellers and lowest prices of any eBookstore in Brazil. The Brazil Kindle Store offers over 1.4 million books, now available to Brazilian customers priced in Brazilian Reais (R$), including more than 13,000 Portuguese-language books, 49 of 60 Veja best sellers—the most of any digital bookstore—and the most free books in Portuguese.
In addition, Amazon announced that Kindle, the world’s #1 best-selling e-reader for five years running, will go on sale in Brazil in the coming weeks with a suggested retail price of R$299.
Amazon.com.br also announced that independent authors and publishers are now able to make their books available in the new Brazil Kindle Store using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). Brazilian independent authors and publishers can utilize the new Portuguese-language KDP website to make their books available in Brazil, and more than 175 countries worldwide. They can also price their books and receive payments in Brazilian Reais for their sales in Brazil, all while retaining control of their content and copyrights.
Amazon has also introduced free Kindle reading apps in Portuguese for all of the most popular devices and platforms, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones, Android tablets, PC and Mac. With the free Kindle apps, customers “Buy Once, Read Everywhere”—Amazon’s Whispersync technology automatically synchronizes a customer’s Kindle library, as well as their notes, highlights and last page read across all of their Kindle devices and Kindle apps. Customers can easily access the Kindle Store directly from their phone, tablet or computer web browser, with all of the features customers love about shopping on Amazon, including personalized recommendations, instant one-click buying and customer reviews, and then start reading Kindle books on their iPhone, iPad, Android tablets and phones, PCs and Macs.
