I have another question relating to ebooks for the Kindle (or even in general).

Are there region coding restrictions? (I've had a quick look around the net and there seems to be quite a few comments to suggest that there are)

I've ordered (physical) books from the US before now and had thought that having an e-reader would make things a little quicker and easier. I suppose there is licensing issues to think about though.
Only certain books are offered through the Kindle service based on your country/region as set in the Kindle. So, yes, it is essentially region-locked.
Not affiliated with those other white knights. I'm the good kind.
I has a blag.
