Amazon Drops Price Of Kindle

KindleAmazon has quietly dropped the price of its Kindle book reader, the device it recently said was selling better than it expected.

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.
