Amazon Knocks the Price of the Kindle Down to £59 in The UK

January 30th, 2014 by · 4 Comments · Amazon, hardware news, Kindle, UK

I think Amazon’s facing more pressure in the UK (or maybe they just want to have another sale). Amazon’s Kindle K4cheapest ebook reader just got a little more budget-priced today.

They’ve knocked £10 off the price of the Kindle, bringing it to an appealing £59. This is the basic model Kindle, which means it lacks the touchscreen, frontlight, fast CPU, or other frills found on the more expensive models. On the other hand it also has an ever falling price, which is itself appealing.

The retail giant faces perennial pressure in the UK from any number of competitors. Today it might be Sainsbury’s, but tomorrow it could be Sony, and then Nook, Kobo, or even Tesco (at some unknown future date), each of which might throw a sale in order to attract customers.
