The kindle just got cheaper at $139

| December 29, 2010

Amazon just took the wraps off two new Kindle models: the “Kindle Wi-Fi” and “Kindle Free 3G+Wi-Fi”. The big news is price, at least for the Wi-Fi  Kindle model: $139.

As much as i wanted a kindle bad ,I could not and would not pay that much for a dedicated e-book reader. In my mind, the magic price point was $100 to $110. I suspected it would come down or close  to this price, and I’m delighted to see we’re almost there.

Amazon on Wednesday officially unveiled a next-generation Kindle that is what many tech pundits thought it would be: smaller and lighter, with a better screen and some Wi-Fi thrown into the mix.

“This is the future of book reading. It will be everywhere.” Michael Lewis, author of Moneyball and Liar’s Poker.

At $139, the Kindle Wi-Fi is Amazon’s most affordable e-book reader yet. But is it affordable enough?

I’m also glad Amazon finally realized that built-in 3G is overkill in a device like the Kindle. Between homes, offices, Maccas, and airports, Wi-Fi hot spots are just about everywhere. Downloading the occasional book doesn’t carry the same urgency as, say, checking e-mail or updating Twitter, so why pay extra for 3G? (You still can, of course: the “Free 3G+Wi-Fi” model sells for $189.

As i don’t own an iPad and iPhone ,I’d definitely grab the Kindle Wi-Fi for $139. It’s not $100 or $110 but it’s close enough.
