    We bought a Kindle Fire for our son as a Christmas gift. We were about to purchase one for his wife when we were told that it will not work in Sweden. I called the 800 Amazon help # then also sent an email question. (person who answered the 800# did not seem sure of himself) The email response also was a no go. Is there a similar tablet that we could purchase for them to use? The $200 price was right as was the size for travel. Thanks you!

    Amazon does not have a site in Sweden (I believe) but the nearest is Amazon Deutschland (Amazon.de) so you could try to register any US bought kindles there.

    I believe you can still access the various Amazon websites simply by typing the correct country code - amazon.co.uk / amazon.de / amazon.fr however if he wants to stream Amazon movies into Sweden, I believe they are blocked.

    Could you simply buy them tablets from the German Amazon store?

    I´m from Sweden. If there is a european Amazon with this service so do I believe it would work since all the agreements between the countries in the union. However, he could use a VPN, but those cost maybe some dollars/month and are somewhat slow, especially for a movie.
