Amazon's (AMZN) has finally reached e-book distribution deals with some major Japanese publishing houses, reports The Asahi Shimbun. It's added Amazon has been squabbling with local publishers over the right to set retail prices (that sounds familiar), among other things. Progress remains slow: Jeff Bezos only promises that a release date for Japanese Kindles will be announced by year's end.
