New Kindle WiFi for $114 is Ad Sponsored

Posted on April 13, 2011

Amazon just released a new variation of their Kindle 3 Wifi edition that can save you a cool $25.

But there is a catch...you will now see ads on the screensaver and at the bottom of the home page.

Personally, I don't see the sponsored ads as being too intrusive and the price point is getting very close to the $100 mark. My guess is that most of the ads will be from either Amazon or from publishers and authors. I assume the screensaver ads will not be hyperlinked as they will disappear once the kindle is awoken from sleep mode. Home page ads will most likely be hyperlinked to the Amazon store for purchases.

So would you buy an ad-driven kindle to save $25? Let me know by posting your comments below.
