Amazon Interested in Selling Kindle EBook Reader Overseas
      07/27/09 02:47 PM

Amazon reported its second quarter results with 15 percent sales increase and 10 percent decrease in earnings. The company's CFO Tom Szkutak was most enthusiastic about the Kindle sales, ""Kindle sales continue to exceed our expectations and we reduced the price of Kindle, the number one best seller in our consumer electronics store, to $299," said Mr. Szkutak according to a call transcript.

Amazon is very interested in taking the Kindle overseas, according to the CFO. "In terms of Kindle international, it's certainly an opportunity. Customers have certainly expressed an interest and we have a long-standing practice of not talking about what we might do, but certainly it's clearly an opportunity."
