Amazon Drops Price Of KindleMay 27th, 2008 | By James Lewin | Category: General, iPods & Portable Media Players
The Kindle electronic book reader had been $399; now it lists for $359.
We’ve been skeptical about the Kindle’s prospects since it was introduced. While it’s a big name book reader, it has clunky hardware design and a high price.
Even more important, the Kindle doesn’t embrace the Internet. It doesn’t make it easy for you to get Internet content; it isn’t a new platform that you can easily publish content for; and it doesn’t play well with the Web.
