Free Amazon Kindle

ENTERTAINMENT/TECHNOLOGY - You can buy an Amazon Kindle gadget for reading eBooks for $109 or one of the more expensive versions like the Kindle DX (for $379).

However its not really WORTH that much.

When you consider you can read eBooks on a tablet like a BlackBerry PlayBook for $199, an iPad 2 for $519 or an HTC JetStream LTE tablet for $799 then what you realize is that the Amazon Kindle is a cheap piece of obsolete junk.

Same goes with the Kobo eBook reader and other eReading gadgets. They're all obsolete as tablet prices keep dropping and more tablets hit the market.

Which brings me to the topic at hand... If Amazon and other publishing companies really want to push their eBook readers they're going to have to resort to the same tactics used by the cellphone companies:

Start giving away free Kindles on some kind of contract basis. They will make more money off the book sales from people downloading and paying for eBooks...

Although to be realistic eventually (maybe 10 years from now) tablets will also be free and being sold on a contract basis, with the goal of selling eBooks, music, movies, games and internet service. For now the early adopters of this technology will have to pay.

Right now you can get a free Notepad computer just by signing up for Rogers Mobile Internet.

Or you can get $300 off a HTC JetStream LTE tablet (normally $799) by signing up for a 3 year contract for Rogers wireless internet.

So you see its already happening. Just give them time and before you know it eReaders and tablets will be free and they will be selling wireless internet, music and games to a hooked and addicted populace.
