Amazon to give away Kindle to thwart iPad

Posted in iPad, News by ipadnerd on February 13, 2010

Amazon is seriously considering giving away Kindles to their Amazon Prime members ($79 annually) in an effort to thwart the Apple iPad. The thinking is that it will pay off in the long run with increased ebook sales. Amazon experimented with this idea in January and is in the process of fine tuning the offering.

    I would rather have a “Multi-Purpose” iPad than a one purpose Kindle.

    So tired of the constant negativity against Apple products. We had PC’s for years. They never lasted very long. Now we both have iMac and LOVE them.

      Couldn’t agree with you more. Apple products just work and have much better replacement cycle than PC’s. A recent study found that Apple owners keep their computers 1.5 years longer than PC owners. Nuff said.
