Well, Amazon's MP3 store isn't in Canada (where I am), and I'm guessing not in many of the countries iTunes has expanded to; thanks for the confirmation that Amazon loves the UK more than Canada, though, as I've long suspected..... I've used eMusic as well, so I'm not solely iTunesing, and in fact I would love for Amazon to get into Canada, as the competition would be great (eMusic is okay, but, case in point, they recently added the Sony/Columbia back catalog, of course US only, so we canuckleheads get hosed again, eh). The general problem remains here: Amazon (and Android, and others) has a pretty spotty record for getting into other countries and fully supporting them. My guess is any Amazon phone, should they be crazy enough to do one, would be limited in market and scope for quite some time, and that's problematic, because Apple is almost everywhere at this point, and is thinking globally, if not quite acting it.
