There is now a lower priced Amazon Kindle at $299. Now that’s what I’m talking about. Although it has a 6″ screen, 2 GB HD (1.4 available for user content) and you can see what else it has…
It’s not as big as the latest Kindle and it doesn’t have an SD slot, it’s not in color and it isn’t touchscreen. But the good news is that it’s coming down in price. Maybe they are seeing that people just aren’t buying the Kindle because of the gigantic cost. I mean, $300 is still a lot of money but not compared to $489 for the Kindle DX.
If I bought a Kindle for $299 then I bet you anything in about a year they will have a better one for $199 then a year later a better one for $99. Well, I don’t know if they will drop that dramatically but I think I’m going to wait for them to come down a bit more before I take that leap.
I would love to buy a bigger screen one for Darrin for the newspaper but unfortunately our local paper is not available for the Kindle. They are digital but with another company so hopefully when the Kindle goes down in price then our paper will see that it’s getting popular or they are getting a lot of requests then they will finally add their paper to the Kindle.
