Wi-Fi Kindle Touch available for international delivery, functionality varies by region

Amazon.com is now offering the Wi-Fi Kindle Touch for international shipping — though there are some functionality caveats.

Amazon wasn't shy about reporting the one million Kindle devices it sold per week in December, but one important factor to keep in mind is international availability: the full line-up of devices is currently available only in the US. International users anxious to get their hands on the touchscreen iteration of the reader have reason to celebrate, however, as the Wi-Fi Kindle Touch is now available for delivery across the globe. Unfortunately, it appears to be through Amazon.com only at the moment, as none of the company's region-specific portals have the device listed. There are some functionality caveats as well: depending on your region, you may not be able to download books over Wi-Fi (Bulgaria appears to be limited to sideloading via USB, for example), and the Kindle catalog appear to still be focused primarily on English-language titles.
