Cheating Amazon Japan

Amazon advertises that the Kindle with 3G can access the store and the purchased books in more than 100 (or 150) countries of the world (see http://client0.cellmaps.com/viewer.html).

Well, unless you buy a Kindle in Japan at amazon.co.jp – because Kindles sold there are only enabled for Japan. Yes, you hear right! Everyone around the world can use the 3G network in more than 150 countries including Japan, but Japanese customers are supposed to not leave their country.

This is cheating, I will do everything to return my Kindle to the Japanese Amazon store and purchase a new one in Europe, one where I can use the 3G not only in Japan, but in the rest of the world, too.

Amazon, that is a big failure, I hope many Japanese make you pay for that!
