Kindleの通信費は無料だと思われる


Kindle使用して3日目のレビュー」に書いた通信費に関してもう少し調べたところ、「やっぱり無料だろう」という結論に至りました。

Kindle Customer Service Recent Q&As (October)に、
Q: When do international download fees apply?
A: U.S. Customers traveling abroad that download books wirelessly from the Kindle Store or from Archived Items will be charged a fee of $1.99 for these international book downloads (this fee only applies to U.S. customers using Kindle U.S. and International Wireless devices when outside the U.S.).
U.S. customers can continue to receive all of their newspaper, magazine, and blog subscriptions via Whispernet while traveling abroad, for a weekly fee of $4.99, or $1.99 per issue.
To avoid any fees, customers can always download books, periodicals, and personal documents to their computer and transfer to their Kindle via USB. To download and transfer Kindle content, visit www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle.
For non-U.S. customers, there are no additional charges for receiving books or periodicals wirelessly outside their home country.

とあります。これは確実に無料でしょう。

ということで、試しに "The Economist"を購読してみます。一ヶ月後のクレジットカード明細が楽しみだ。
