Many people are in a bit of a quandary, do we wait for the new Kindle 4 to arrive or do we buy the Kindle 3? There is certainly no doubt that the Kindle 3 offers a lot of great features, and the price is now lower than ever before. Amazon have set up a special low price for the Kindle 3 with some unobtrusive advertising and sales have gone through the roof.
That low price certainly makes it a very affordable e-book reader.
Buy Kindle 3?
So, to buy the Kindle 3 or not?
The final decision is simply going to come down to what you feel you need from an e-book reader. The Kindle 3 provides everything that we need if we simply want a way to store and access our books in a very readable format. The technology that makes the Kindle so much like reading a paperback is what owners love, and it is certainly very realistic.
And currently we simply do not know exactly what we are going to get from the new Kindle 4. With so many rumors about what Amazon are going to come out with next we could wait around for a long time before we finally make a decision.

But what we do know is that there is going to be a release of the Kindle 4 and also an Amazon tablet and color Kindle at some point in 2011, or early 2012. We simply need to decide what we want out devices to be for. The tablet is never going to be a replacement for the Kindle, battery life won’t allow it, and neither will screen technology. So, for those that want a good quality e-book reader the Kindle is the best option.
The Kindle 4 is touted to be a color option, touch screen has even been discussed. If that is what you really want then it may well be worth waiting until near to the end of the year to buy a new release rather than a Kindle 3. But for those that simply want a very cheap, but high quality e-book reader, the best on the market, then the Kindle 3 is certainly more than going to live up to expectations.
