Kindle retailing remains weird. Dick Smith has an Australian physical store exclusive on the Kindle Touch, which it is selling in-store for $185. But if you order it from Amazon directly, you’ll pay $149 including postage. I know what I’d do.
Amazon’s new Kindle Touch is $US99. Businessweek also reported that Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet is going to be an equally preposterous $US200. The $US99 price point is for the Special Offers version, though, so if you need a totally ad-free reader, the no-ads version will run you $US139.
