Amazon’s Kindle Touch will finally make it across the pond to Europe, five months after its U.S. launch — but not the advertising-subsidized version.

The BBC is reporting that April 27 is the launch date of the touchscreen-driven Kindle in the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. However, notes the Beeb, “there will not be a discounted version with adverts.”

Amazon.co.uk has already begun taking advance orders for the Kindle Touch. No European release date is reported yet for the Kindle Fire.

    Good to know about it, also i heard that the Amazon starts pre-orders for its touch-screen e-reader in Europe, but has no update on a local launch for its Kindle Fire tablet.
