Kindle for $114 w. Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers

“Amazon Introduces New Kindle Family Member: Kindle with Special Offers for $114
That is $25 less for the #1 bestselling latest-generation Kindle plus special offers and sponsored screensavers.

Special offers in the initial weeks include:
. $10 for $20 Amazon.com Gift Card,
. $1 for an album in the Amazon MP3 Store, and
. a $100 Gift Card with a new Amazon Rewards Visa Card

There is no $25 lower price for the Kindle 3G model, that still costs $189. The use of the 3G wireless for updating the screensavers and the ads may be just to expensive. That way the difference between the lowest-priced Kindle and the 3G model will be $75 now rather than $50.

Amazon Kindle DX another price drop

Amazon has just dropped the price of its remaining inventory of new Kindle DX Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G, 9.7″ Display, White, 3G Works Globally – 2nd Generation units to $359 each. So far it’s just the normal Kindle DX with all the new features of the firmware update to version 2.5.x

So it comes as usual with free global 3G.  Until last week it was the newest Kindle DX and was selling for $489!

Well that is still a lot of money, but here it comes, if you don’t mind to take a refurbished model of the same Kindle DX – they are usually as good as any brand new one – the price now goes down to $299 !  These Kindles are factory refurbished and sealed. The only difference to a brand new one is that it does not ship with the AC adaptor plug. This accessory must be purchased separately.But in 99% you will charge it via USB anyway.

All purchases eligible for Amazon customer service and 30 day return policy.

Amazon Kindle – Price Drop

Only one day after a price drop for the Barnes & Noble nook, Amazon reduced the price for the Kindle 2.

The  nook fell from $259 to $199, a new WiFi only nook costs merely $149.  In response, Amazon has cut the price of the popular Kindle from $259 to $189. In contrast to the nook the Kindle is a 3G only device but with global wireless connection for free!

Since even a bare bone device like the new Kobo reader costs about $149 it seems that the price war is just about to begin and we will see some major price drops within the next few weeks.

My guess is, that low end devices like the Kobo will cost no more then $49 by the end of the year.
