The Latest Kindle

May 6th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


So this is the newest Kindle offering and comes in at the hefty price tag of $489.  I thought the $359 for the regular Kindle was pretty high so I wonder how many people will shell out the extra money.  Sounds like it’s targeted for textbooks and newspapers.  I’ve never been a big reader of print newspapers so not sure how much appeal this would have to me.  What do you think?  Check out this MSNBC article for more details.

    I know, it was painful shelling our for the original and I only did that with the $50 off Oprah coupon.

    I like that me kindle 2 is the size of a paperback and easy to read with one hand. Agree that the price is too high, especially considering the price of textbooks these days. I also write all over school books. We’ll have to see how these sell.

    I’m a total scribbler and highlighter in text books too. I’m not sure if any notes capability would be the same.

    I’ve used the highlighting feature before on my device, but only went back to it once. It’s kinda cumbersome due to the lack of a touchscreen.
