Amazon Kindle 2 Price Drops Down to $300

Those in the market for a Kindle 2 but hesitating until the price dropped juuust a little are in luck: Amazon has dropped the price on the second-generation Kindle to $299 — 60 bucks off its initial price tag.

If I was going to go for a Kindle (and I really want to), this would be the one I got — the Kindle DX is great, but its size and price tag are prohibitively large for me.

Still, $300 is still pretty prohibitively expensive itself — but will some of you be taking the plunge on the Kindle 2 now?

I bought mine a week before the price went down so I was bummed. But I contacted Amazon and they refunded the $60. Now I am even happier with it.

Ooh. I've been saving. So maybe this will make it easier for me to get!

beram1220, the point isn't really that it's smaller than a book, it's that you can have many books with you all at once. also, books are cheaper as a kindle version. and furthermore I've personally "acquired" books and put them on my Kindle (sort of how you put "acquired" mp3's on an ipod).

I've been saving up for the Kindle. I'm glad they've made me $60 closer! Beram1220, but its much smaller than the 1,500 books it can hold! I'm an avid reader and usually read a fiction and nonfiction book at the same time, so being able to carry both items on something that weighs less than a book would be great! Plus, I can buy a new book from anywhere.

I'm so tempted. I read on my iPod Touch all the time, but its so small, and the Kindles look so nice. No! Trying to save money...! :)

I'm sorry that's insane to pay $300 for something that isn't much smaller than a real book AND you have to pay for the book.

I'm in. Was going to buy one with birthday money last week but went to Sephora instead ;-) Now I'll make the purchase for sure.
