Kindle price drop to $79; How low can they go? Will this new Kindle be the hottest holiday gift this year?
As you might know, I keep an eye on prices for e-readers mainly because I own a nook and also because my 10 year old BEGS me all the time for one of her own. Dropping below the $100 price point is great, but Kindle now has a $79 e-reader that may just be one of the hottest sellers this holiday season.
In an open letter on Amazon.com, the new prices for Kindles are laid out, including the new $79 Kindle, which weighs less than 6 ounces and has a 6" display. You'll still have the "special offers", which is targeted advertising, at this price point. This Wi-Fi Kindle will also allow you to borrow books from your library (if they participate).
