    Just in case anyone is interested in ordering a Kindle 3 from Amazon.com, it is possible to have it shipped to Hong Kong. The shipping cost table is not very well written on their website but when I order mine (plus a case), it came out to US$26.97. Based on my understanding of the table, I would have expected it to be either only US$14.99 or US$20.98. It is this much because it can only be shipped under the Priority Courier option. Standard or Expedited shipping options are not allowed. So if you plan on ordering a Kindle along with other items like books, don't do it as a bundle unless you really need those other items within 2-4 days. Just do two separate orders instead. I ordered four books and the shipping on them went from over $50 down to something like $23.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
    would definitely like to know how in the world we're meant to get covers for the kindle 3 in hong kong, ive heard theyre not available in wanchai computer center, 298 etc(which ill be confirming myself tomorrow) and amazon dont ship covers here. is there something im missing?

    Most of the Amazon sources for covers are from unrelated vendors that sell via Amazon. Some of them ship internationally, you just have to check around.
