A few links that might be of interest for your Friday/weekend.
Amazon seems to be v. close to releasing a Kindle"tablet." It may be that they plan to capitalize on the upcoming holiday season, so keep your eyes open.
In its quest for world domination, Amazon also opened an online store in Spain. I've heard nothing as far as what this means for ebooks, but, with several countries already in its grasp, more foreign KDP stores could open (which means a 70% royalty rate on ebook sales as opposed to the 35% foreign sale royalty rate).
There is also this, which I have plenty of opinions about but will choose not to air until I have more information. :)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
