Just earlier this week, I noticed a few sites excited over Amazon's offer for a $US199 refurbished first generation Kindle. But now, Amazon has dropped the price to $US150.
That's half the price of a new Kindle 2 (or $US70 less than a refurb Kindle 2), with all of the same core functionality (like Amazon's wireless Whispernet) intact.
So is $US150 cheap enough to tempt you? Or is your eBook pricepoint lower, say, $US100 or $US50 or free with X amount of book purchases? Inquiring minds want to know!
Personally, I'm a big enough tech whore that I'd only buy the latest model of Kindle for that much, partially for the tiny improvements, largely so people ask me, "Is that a new Kindle??" And I say, "Sorry, I don't associate with the type who doesn't know whether or not this is the latest Kindle. Nothing personal. Just a simple code by which I live my life."
