Clearly, Amazon's Kindle offers experiment is working. Not long after announcing a special ad-supported $164 version of its Kindle 3G, Amazon has announced that it is slashing the device's price even further. The device will now run for $139, a $25 price drop from its previous price and a full $50 cheaper than the plan old Kindle 3G.
There is, however, a catch. The most recent Kindle price cut comes via a partnership with AT&T, meaning that the eReader's offers will largely consist of AT&T advertisements. So you should weigh that reality against your desire to own a Kindle before you shell out the cash.
Amazon announced the original ad-supported Kindle back in April as an alternative to the original offers-free version of the eReader. Amazon is able to offer the Kindles at a lower price due to the ad placement on the devices. Might we expect similar sponsorships in the future?
