Amazon Continues to Prove is the Best Choice for E-Reader Devices
Some of you have, in varying degrees, expressed a bit of angst over the fact that I’m a huge advocate of the Amazon Kindle, as oppose to…ah….well, anything else. I still am, and my reasons for being an advocate for the Kindle over other choices just became even stronger reasons. Simply put, Amazon is, in my opinion, the best choice due to its huge selection of titles, it’s extensive infrastructure supporting their e-book sales and offerings and the fact that Kindle device itself has just become even lighter and less expensive.
Amazon shattered the $100 price point for an e-reader with its announcement of the latest version of the Kindle, which, if you choose to get the model that displays some advertising, you will only pay $79. The advertisements are entirely non-obtrusive. You never see them when actually reading a book. The basic model is basic, but if you are looking, as I am, for the lightest, simplest, smallest and best e-book reading experience out there today, you will choose an Amazon Kindle.
But wait a minute, buried in all the other information is the announcement that for $99 bucks, you can get a Kindle with touch technology on the screen, with the same great e-ink technology. This is precisely what I’ve been looking for and I think it is going to make the e-book reading experience on a Kindle much better. More information here.
