Those late purchasing Christmas gifts for the 2012 season could be playing a smart strategy according to researchers at ThoseTechGuys.com. This technology review company has released a new price review for retailers that still have the Amazon Kindle in stock. This review reports that a $20 Kindle discount now applies for late Christmas shoppers that purchase online. This incentive provides a price break off the $89 list price.
The tablet industry has grown since the first edition of the iPad was launched in 2009. Manufacturers like Samsung, Coby and Amazon have all created devices to help chip away a portion of Apple’s sales. The standard Kindle still remains one of the best selling units and the new $20 discount found is for holiday shoppers to benefit from online.
While the new HD versions of this tablet provide full color video, the ultra bright LEDs that power the original Kindle device provide the right light for e-book reading. This unit weighs less than 6 ounces and can hold thousands of books.
According to Amazon’s specs, this tablet can download a book in under one minute making it easy for those that are on the go to access books fast.
Early Christmas shoppers, as profiled by TTG online, found some retailers sold out of these tablets for Black Friday. The unexpected discounts by Amazon for the HD versions helped to make the Kindle Fire a best seller for the holiday season. The $20 price drop for the classic edition is expected to introduce more people to this device at a lower price point.
The new price report that is published online is expected to continue with updates on stock statuses and unexpected price drops as the holiday nears to a close. Those that have not purchased a gift for Christmas could benefit from accessing this information online.
