You’ve probably heard in the past couple days that Amazon had planned to inflict ads upon all owners of the new Kindle Fire HD Android tablets. I have some good news and bad news. You don’t have to see the ads, but it’s going to cost you $15 to get rid of them (according to TechCrunch). Here’s what an Amazon spokesman said:
We know from our Kindle reader line that customers love our special offers and very few people choose to opt out. We’re happy to offer customers the choice.
Well this was a short-lived story.
So, do you think the $214 Kindle Fire HD is as good of a value as it was when that same tablet cost $199?
