Kindle came out in November and the price at that time was $399. Since then hundreds of Kindle has been sold. But, as expected, when a new product comes on the scene, it starts out at a somewhat “high” price only to be reduced as time goes by. Well, Kindle‘s time has come and a lot of customers (early adopters) are not happy.
Many of them believe that Amazon owe them a refund and have even taken steps to contact the company asking for a refund. But, as expected Amazon said no. Only those who have bought Kindle within the last 30 days of the price cut will get a refund…which if you ask me, I think is reasonable.
Consider this. When you decided to buy Kindle, you agreed to pay the asking price at the time. So If the price dropped a few weeks later, you are simply unlucky. If Amazon wants to give you a refund, its at their discretion…they don’t have to because there is no law saying they should. So, the bottom line is live with it and move on. You have one hell of a device in your hand, enjoy it.
I, myself am an early adopter, and I don’t f.eel cheated. In fact, I feel blessed to have been a part of the first batch of buyers. I have learned so much about this device since it came on the scene that the $40 dollars does not even matter. Why? Because I know that this in one for the future. In fact, I am expecting further price cuts as time goes by and is looking forward to getting the second version Kindle at a much lower price.
