The Amazon Kindle 4 with Special Offers will be on sale at Walmart April 29th for two days. You can get it for $79.99 and also get a free $30.00 giftcard, which is just in time for Mother’s Day!
The new Kindle features a six ink e-ink Pearl display with a resolution of 600×800 pixels. It has 167 PPI and 16 levels of greyscale, which is on par with prior offerings of the Kindle device. It has 2 GB of internal memory, but only has 1.25 GB of that available to load your own content onto it. You can checkout books from the library and hook it up to your computer to load your own books.
I recommend buying this as a gift for that special lady in your life, which ideally should be your mom! At 79.99 the price is right and is fairly user friendly.
