Kindle NYT subscribers get free access to NYTimes.com

Good news for Kindle owners who subscribe to The New York Times. They'll get free, unlimited access to NYTimes.com now that the pay wall has gone up.

Good news for Kindle owners who subscribe to The New York Times. They'll get free, unlimited access to NYTimes.com now that the pay wall has gone up.

The announcement isn't surprising, however, considering NYT readers who still subscribe to the paper version of the Gray Lady can read anything and all they want on NYTimes.com. It would be silly if Kindle subscribers didn't get the same service.

The catch is that this feature for Kindle owners isn't available just yet. The launch date is "yet undetermined," and subscribers will be notified via e-mail when it is revealed. So until then, stick close to your Kindles as you'll be limited to 20 NYT articles per week otherwise.
