DUBAI, August 28, 2018

Amazon and Souq.com, a top online retail and marketplace website, said that customers in the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Oman can now buy Kindle devices, including the bestselling Kindle Paperwhite and the advanced e-reader—Kindle Oasis.

“We are delighted to make books more accessible by bringing the bestselling e-readers in the world to our customers in the UAE,” said Souq.com CEO and co-founder Ronaldo Mouchawar. “Our customers will now be able to carry their most loved books in a single device and will be able to seek knowledge on the go. As part of the Amazon family, we’re thrilled to add Kindle to our broad selection of more than 9.4 million items.”

“Kindle devices are built from the ground up for readers—they hold thousands of books, offer a battery life that is measured in weeks, feature a no-glare display so you can read even in bright sunlight, and more,” said Kevin Keith, vice president, Amazon Devices.

“We’re thrilled to bring the features that readers love about Kindle to Souq.com customers. With Kindle, readers can access the vast selection of books on Amazon.com in the Kindle Store—more than one million titles, and now including more than 12,000 Arabic language Kindle books.”
