Amazon's Kindle plans stuffed in Germany

Wireless carriers want too much cash

While Amazon's Kindle is selling out fast in the rest of the world, the outfit is still having trouble making deals in Germany.

According to people close to Amazon, the German wireless carriers simply want too much cash to run the service. T-Mobile and Vodafone have been hanging out for more cash according to the German news site WirtschftsWoche. Amazon thinks the prices they want to provide the service are excessive. Talks have apparently broken down.

Europe is currently home for the Sony Reader and had not been part of the Kindle glorious revolution. This is because Amazon seemed unable to negotiate a pan European contract because there were so many suppliers.

Apparently it was concerned that people would get miffed if they could not read their favourite Jackie Collins while they were on holiday.
