Amazon drops price of Kindle 2

July 9, 2009 The cost of the Kindle 2 reader has been reduced by 17 percent to $299 dollars. That's $60 less than it's original price when it was introduced back in February as an update to the original Kindle.

The Kindle 2 has a longer battery life, a nicer display, a slimmer body and can store about 1500 books.

Amazon is not lowering the price of its newer, larger Kindle DX which was released in May.
