    I thought I had posted a thread on this when it was announced but it seems that I only posted it on my blog.



    Also, the devices themselves have dropped in price. The 6 inch display is now $189 (I bought one last month and it was delivered to my door within 6 days, remarkable considering that I'm in Australia). And the larger one has had $110 taken off the retail price as of July 1st.

    Amazon reduced the price of the Kindle on the same day as announcing the release of the Kindle applications for iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry. Is there not also a brand new model of the Kindle?

    You no longer require a Kindle to read a Kindle book. I guess that they realised the market potential was much greater if they could increase the quantity of book sales rather than keeping them exclusive.

      Yep, there's now the Kindle DX as well...bigger, more capacity, and available in granite too instead of just white. I just wrote an introduction to the two models a few days ago, I kept running into people who had never heard of it smile. As I recall, the release worldwide is also a relatively new thing, when I did a transcription for a conference in late 2009 in Canada one of the guest speakers mentioned it and most of his Canadian audience had no clue what he was talking about.

    Amazon is competing with the Barnes and Noble Nook in the US. The Nook price dropped to $199 and Amazon went to $189. B&N also has just released a $149 version of nook that runs only on wifi and not 3G. So if people have wifi in their homes they use that. Nook wifi was introduced to compete with the Borders Kobo which is priced at $149 and has no 3G.

    Of course Nook doesn't work outside the US, which is an issue for you guys but not me. So I went with nook because you can lend a book to a nook user not on your account.

    B&N and Amazon have both had apps for the iphone, blackberry etc, for ages. I've had both on my notebook and blackberry for close to a year I think

      Apologies, I just checked, and they revamped and relaunched those apps. I know because I recieved an email about them, and subsequently wrote hubs. They revamped their Kindle DX that day too, apparently the resolution is better and stuff.

    I was happy to get that email from Amazon because so many of the purchases are Kindle books!

    I am in shock, I just got a rebate in export fees for my kindle that I bought just before they lowered the price.

      lol  amazing!! hey, who wants to try?? see who can sell it first??  wow, did you read the first review of this book?

      I am madly in love with my kindle. I used it for the first time today actually reading a book. what fun. you can click to see the definition of a word, underline texts, take notes.
      I like how it shows you at the bottom how far you've progressed and automatically saves it when you close it.
      I haven't had it read to me yet, that would be a cool job, being a reader for the ebooks.

        LOL! No I hadn't seen that. I was just looking at the price.

        The review is as priceless as the cost of the book. Mind you though, you're saving $1,605.80 off the original retail price. big_smile

    hahahah.... somebody had paid thousands for a kindle book and then realised that the drawings couldnt be seen on the kindle, DOH.

    Who the hell would buy these? Am I missing something? Is this the reserve of Havard professors?

    If I could understand just who would pay this money for an e-Book, then I would without a doubt give it a whirl!
