Amazon Introduces Cloud Drive In Italy And Spain, Following Recent Launches In The UK, Germany And France, And Adds New Features For All Customers

(NASDAQ: AMZN) – Amazon.com, Inc. today announced the launch of Amazon Cloud Drive in Italy and Spain, following recent launches in the UK, Germany and France. European customers can now securely store and access all of their digital files in the Amazon cloud using the Cloud Drive PC and Mac Desktop Apps or from any web browser – and from the new Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD. Customers can also rely on speedy access to their photos, documents and other files from servers hosted in Europe. All customers get 5 GB of free storage with additional plans starting at £6 or €8 a year. For more information visit www.amazon.co.uk/clouddrive.

Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD will begin shipping to customers in the EU later this month. The new family of Kindle Fire devices, combined with Cloud Drive, enables customers to easily and safely store and enjoy their photos in stunning high-resolution anywhere they are. Kindle Fire owners can also save their albums from Facebook to Cloud Drive and have them at their fingertips.

“Cloud Drive makes digital file storage simple and secure – two very important features for customers who want to organize and manage precious files like photos,” said Russell Dicker, director of Cloud Drive for Amazon. “Now you never have to worry about losing important documents or photos to hard drive crashes, or not being able to access files that are spread between a number of devices. Cloud Drive stores digital files like photos, videos and documents all in one place that is easily accessible from any PC or Mac – and coming soon in Europe, Kindle Fire.”

With this release, Amazon Cloud Drive also now enables U.S.-based users to share the files they upload to Cloud Drive with friends and family. Users can visit www.amazon.com/clouddrive to view the files they’ve uploaded and select individual files they wish to share.

In addition, Cloud Drive customers in the U.S. and Europe using Mac computers can now easily upload their iPhoto albums to Cloud Drive in as little as two clicks using the Cloud Drive Desktop App. Users can select the events they want to upload and the Cloud Drive Desktop App seamlessly uploads photos so they can be enjoyed instantly on Kindle Fire or from any web browser.
