In the market for an eBook reader and don’t need all the bells and whistles? Amazon’s entry-level Kindle has a 6 inch, E Ink touchscreen display and a list price of $79.
That means you can get an Amazon Kindle for just $29 after rebate.
This isn’t last year’s model or a refurbished unit. It’s a brand new eReader with 4GB of storage, WiFi, and an ePaper display which can handle 16 shades of gray and which has 167 pixels per inch.
It weighs 6.7 ounces, measures 0.4 inches thick, and offers up to a month of battery life.
The entry-level Kindle doesn’t have an illuminated screen, a speaker or headphone jack, or a screen that sits flush with the case. You’ll need a more expensive (or older) model to get those features.
But $29 is a pretty great price if you’re looking for your first eReader or a replacement device.
