Amazon slashes Kindle e reader price

Now here is a question for you to ponder – if Apple’s iPad did not do that phenomenally well on the sales front, would it have led Amazon to slash their Kindle e-reader price to $189 from its previous high of $259? We can’t really tell since we do not possess any crystal ball of sorts, but we do know that healthy competition is always good, and to see the Kindle get more affordable for most people out there is always good news. After all, despite being a 3G wireless device, you won’t need to burden your monthly budget even more with annual contracts or monthly fees. Even better is its display that is easy to read even under bright or direct sunlight, something the iPad loses out on. We do symphatize with those who purchased their Kindles just a day before such an announcement was made. [Press Release]
