For Kindle owners, the allure of getting their hands on the latest Kindle from Amazon is quite enticing, especially with the new features that come with the 3rd generation Kindle. Additionally, there are parents with children who are heading off to university and would like to give them a nice going-away gift. Well, there’s nothing better than a Kindle eBook reader as a gift for students, especially now that Amazon’s Kindle has become more affordable than ever before. In fact, from its original price of $258, the 3rd generation Kindle is now down to just $139. You were looking for the best deal? Well, here it is.

If you ask your son what kind of gift he wants before heading off to university, he might ask for a car. Well, who wouldn’t? But for those of us who are mere mortals, the Kindle 3 is the next best thing. If you already have the original Kindle or the Kindle 2, then you are probably itching to trade-in your Kindle for the latest 3rd generation Kindle, considering the new features that this new model has to offer. And the affordability doesn’t hurt either.

The Amazon 3rd generation Kindle actually comes in two versions: the Kindle Wi-Fi and the Kindle 3G + Wi-Fi connectivity. The first version is significantly cheaper than the latter, which is perfect if you are on a budget. The Kindle Wi-Fi provides you with the ability to connect to any public or private Wi-Fi network, making it much easier to download eBooks, share them with your friends, and subscribe to magazines and newspapers. The Kindle 3G, on the other hand, not only has Wi-Fi connectivity, but it also has built-in 3G technology. Essentially, you can connect to the internet from almost anywhere that has a 3G network available.

With Amazon’s affordable Kindle options, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for affordability. However, just to cover all bases, you should consider both types of stores. First, there’s the traditional brick and mortar store, where you can walk into a physical building and take a close look at the product you are buying. Best Buy, Walmart, and Target are examples of brick and mortar stores. Then there are online stores, which I’m sure some of you are already familiar with. Online stores like eBay and Amazon may offer cheaper products because they have lower overhead costs compared to stores like Walmart. The only advantage that brick and mortar stores have over online stores is that they allow for face-to-face interaction with customers and let them physically see the product they are interested in.

However, shopping online can actually get you the best deal you’ve always wanted. Visiting multiple online stores and comparing prices will provide you with enough options to make a purchase. Compared to brick and mortar stores, online stores have much lower overhead expenses. Some online shops even offer free shipping of purchased goods, especially during holiday seasons. However, if money is not an issue for you, the best place to buy a Kindle eBook reader is undoubtedly Amazon’s Kindle store. They have the best and widest selection of eBook readers, accessories, and a comprehensive collection of eBooks as well.

Undoubtedly, the Kindle 3 is the perfect gift you can buy for yourself or your children. It is a great way to further enhance their learning experience as they embark on a new challenge in their developing For Game Design - Andrea Angiolino was born the 27th of April, 1966 in Rome, the city where he still lives.
