What about a Cheap Kindle 2? Chris Walters:
Now here’s a bit of anti-Black Friday advice to cheer you up if you don’t get one of these $90 Kindles today. While I loved my Kindle 2 (it really is a great product), the Kindle 3 Wi-Fi model is so much smaller, faster, and brighter that I was shocked the first time I took it out of the box and held it next to my Kindle 2. What I’m saying is, as great as this offer is, if you hold off and save up for the $140 Kindle 3 Wi-Fi model, you’ll still feel like you got a good deal.
Paul Biba weighs in:
- For kids, the Nook Color
- If you want a larger screen, the Sony Daily Edition
- For everybody else, the Kindle 3:
If you have a grandma, father, mother or someone else who is not a techie, the choice is clear to me: the Kindle. After you do the initial setup on Amazon (open an account and register the machine), which takes only a few minutes, the reader never, ever, has to look at a computer again. It’s so simple to operate that even a technophobe will be able to use it.
