Kindle at Staples, Lower Kobo Prices

Ereader Wars Heat Up With Lower Prices and More Availability

Amazon won't disclose the number of new Kindle devices it's sold so far, but it has said that its success has been impressive. The Kindle is already for sale at Target stores, and now it's coming to Staples this Fall. Three Kindle models will be available at all Staples stores: the new Kindle ($139), Kindle 3G ($189), and Kindle DX ($379), plus accessories for all three.

The Kindle isn't the only ereader worth checking out, as evidenced by the success of other models. And today, there's more news about Borders' Kobo ereader, which launched in June. The ereader, formerly priced at $150, has dropped to $129 — $10 less than the Kindle. Additionally, Borders has announced preorder availability for Velocity Micro's Android Cruz Reader R101 ($199) and Cruz Tablet T103 ($299), poised as less expensive iPad competitors.

Hands down I would recommend the kobo reader to everyone. It is just perfect for long travel, for curling into bed with before going to sleep. The kobo reader is slim, lightweight, easy to use, not to mention it features wifi and is easy and simple to shop for books on. It is the most affordable reader on the market and completely worth the money. My friend owns another reader and prefers my kobo over it.
