Today Amazon.com announced two things.
First, the Kindle 2 has a price reduction! It’s going from $299 to $259!
That’s awesome news. I paid $399 for my Kindle 1 in December 2007. To see that this awesome product has decreased in price by $140 is very nice.
And secondly, the Kindle is also now available Internationally! For only $20 more you can access the Whispersync Network from all over the World. Here’s a wireless access map to see if you’re covered where you need or want to be!
I know that not very many readers have resorted to purchasing an ereader. Or have chosen to purchase different brands such as Sony.
I personally love my Kindle. I’m am very instant gratification kind of girl. I love that I could buy a book while sun bathing on the beach last year.
There are tons of reasons why some people just won’t purchase an ereader but I’m a pretty simple person. I know there are limits with the Kindle and I’m okay with them.
What do you think? Is Amazon.com headed in the right direction? I think this is a good sign that soon every person will be able to afford an ereader, whether it’s an Amazon.com Kindle 2, Kindle DX, or even a Sony. :)
