Amazon has just launched the Kindle and Kindle books in India.

The Kindle is possibly the most popular medium for consuming digital books today, and now the device is available for purchase in Chroma retail stores across India. The Kindle is currently priced at Rs. 6,999.

While it was always possible to purchase the Kindle from Amazon and have it ship internationally, and the Kindle store too was accessible in India, the official launch in India means that it is possible to get books at more reasonable rates. Amazon has already begun promoting an entire section of books under the heading “100 Books for Rs. 100 or Less Each”.

The Amazon Kindle store will now also show prices in Indian Rupees while purchasing items if an Indian credit card is associated with the account.

Amazon is also launching Kindle Direct Publishing in India. Kindle Direct Publishing is a program that allows authors to publish independently, and directly with Amazon.

If you are interested in purchasing digital books, but are not sure about buying a Kindle, know that it is possible to read Kindle books without Kindle device. Amazon offers clients for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, and Blackberry. A web-based client is also available which allows you to read purchased Kindle books via a browser.
