Submission + - The true cost of publishing on the Amazon Kindle (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: Ever wondered why Kindle newspapers and magazines don't have many photos? PC Pro has done an analysis of the costs of publishing on The Kindle and discovered that Amazon effectively taxes newspapers and magazines for including more images. Amazon applies "delivery charges" to publishers at the cost of $0.15 per MB/10p per MB. At those prices, PC Pro claims it's cheaper to mail out a physical magazine than have it delivered electronically on The Kindle. What's more, publishers have no control over the price of their newspaper or magazine: Amazon sets the prices itself, leading to huge customer complaints for titles such as The Economist.
