Today, Amazon announced that there will be a KINDLE 3 on 23 August. It will be $139.
About month ago, Amazon lowered the KINDLE 2 from $259 to $189 in response to B&N nook’s being lowered to $199.
A few months ago, Kobo released a low-end, then low-cost eReader for $149. Sony also lowered their cheapest device to $149. Borders.com sells both devices. Borders also sells a ALURATEK LIBRE for $119. Wal-mart, Target and many others are selling various devices.
Refurbished eReaders are hitting the internet for around $100. The eReader is about to hit mass market. This Fall could be the explosion of a new type of eBook consumer. Someone who has been waiting for the drop in price.
The future is upon us — today.
Where will this winding road end up?
