Amazon dropped the price of a standard Kindle to $299 today hoping to spur sales of the popular device.  That’s down $60 from Amazon’s normal price which has held steady since the device was released two years ago.  It isn’t certain what made Amazon drop its price but we can hope that a possible Apple tablet coming down the pipe may have pushed Amazon to become more competitive in their pricing.  The Kindle App on the iPhone is still free btw.
