The discount comes as other eBook readers also drop prices but the Kindle price is even lower than its direct competitors.
With this new Kindle, you can get your books, newspapers, and magazines delivered while at home or abroad in over 100 countries.
At Amazon, we’ve always been obsessed with having every book ever printed, and we know that even the best reading device would be useless without a massive selection of books. Today, the Kindle Store has more than 350,000 books, newspapers, magazines, and blogs available. This is just the beginning. Our vision is to have every book ever printed, in any language, all available in under 60 seconds on Kindle. We won’t stop until we get there.
Whether you prefer biographies, classics, investment guides, thrillers, or sci-fi, thousands of your favorite books are available, including 104 of 112 books currently found on the New York Times® Best Seller list. New York Times Best Sellers and most new releases are $9.99, and you’ll find many books for less.
With my birthday just a month away today, so I’ve now added a Kindle to my wish list. I don’t know that anyone’s likely to buy me one but a man can hope.
The latest price drop seems to be in response to the release of the iPad. I got to play around with an iPad a few days ago and while I was impressed, I can’t see myself paying the price they’re asking at the moment. I’m sure that an iPad would be fun, but the Kindle Wireless Reading Device is simply a convenient book reading device. I’d find that quite useful. It would make reading a lot simpler than carrying around bundles and bundles of books, magazines and newspapers.
Does the new price for the Kindle make you more likely to grab yourself one?
