What’s good for the goose is apparently good or the 3G flavour of Kindle, as the ad-supported “Kindle with Special Offers” has been selling like high temperature pastry goods despite the general consensus in the tech industry that the $25 savings don’t warrant the sustained advertising intrusion on your leisure time. Amazon, for its part, sees no reason why the other model shouldn’t get some of that consumer love and we have to admit $164 for unlimited 3G access to any novel on the planet would seem mighty tempting, especially for people who have been saving up for the higher price point.
We’re not sure whether people don’t mind the ads or aren’t completely grasping the concept, but we’re glad this is working out for Amazon, if only because we imagine it brings us closer to a world where you can get a free Kindle if you agree to have Coca-Cola tattooed onto your forehead. And if living in that world is wrong, we don’t want to be right.
