If you haven’t bought a Kindle as yet and dont mind a few adverts popping up on your screen, then you might be pleased to know that Amazon has started shipping its new advertising support Kindle earlier than expected.
Amazon calls their new Kindle the ‘Kindle with Special Offers’, and the new version is $25 cheaper than the existing latest generation WiFi-only Kindle and retails for $114. Adverts will only be shown on the bottom of the home screen and during the screen saver and no where else, says Amazon.
“We’re working hard to make sure that anyone who wants a Kindle can afford one,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “Kindle with Special Offers is the same #1 bestselling Kindle – and it’s only $114. Kindle is the best deal in consumer electronics anywhere in the world.”
Unfortunately the Kindle with Special Offers is currently only available in the US at the moment.
