A colleague of mine and I got into an interesting discussion the other day that I thought is worth mentioning here. We were talking about the best thing you can buy for $200, and I told him that I thought Kindle was the best thing I had bought for $400 next to the iPhone. But iPhone is not really going for $400. If you count the service plan, you are paying well into a couple of thousands. Now here is my question. Is Kindle the best thing you can buy with $360 in your pocket? With the same money you can buy X-Box, Wii, various cell phones, an old junk car, and … I am assuming that you are going to use the money to buy something and not save up actually 🙂 I think Kindle is up there if not at the very top. What’s your take?
