Though in US dollar terms the Kindle is twice as expensive in Brazil as it is in the States, among its South American peers it carries a relatively lightweight pricetag.
At R$299 ($145/€110) it is more than half the price of the Positivo Alfa or COOL-ER, and manages to undercut the more frugal Kobo Touch by a quarter.
Apple, Amazon and Google have all launched localized Brazilian e-book stores in the last few months, following Ratuken's partnership with Livraria Cultura, which saw the Kobo Touch introduced to the national chain.
