Amazon, riding on the success of their recent ad-supported Wi-Fi only (at just $114) Kindle has now introduced a new ad-supported 3G version of the Kindle for just $164. That means a $25 savings when compared to the original Kindlw 3G version which is priced at $189. More interestingly, the announcement came on the same day when Barne & Noble introduced their all new Nook Simple Touch Reader and the Kobo launched its new Kobo eReader Touch edition. They were priced at $140 and $130 respectively, much lesser than the Kindle 3G version. While Amazon is not introducing a touch eReader, it sure has plans to launch Android tablets pretty soon to stay ahead in the competition.
If you are not sure what the ad-supported Kindle (or Kindle with Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers) means, well basically this special edition of Kindle displays ads at the bottom of the homepage and some ads in the form of screensavers. These are incorporated in such a way that they won’t destroy the reading experience of the reader.
