    Just sold it thru Amazon for $225. I think next week they'll be selling for well under $200. I was surprised used Kindles are still selling for over $200. Guess she's sold on making the jump from Kindle to iPad. She's already a heavy iPhone user.

    My plan is to get the wifi/64 version on Saturday, if I love it I'll order the 3g version (for business) and she'll keep the wifi/64 for herself.

    Yay for your sale too!

    :)

    I sold my wife's Kindle about 3 weeks ago, after confirming I was buying iPad. We sold it for $200, minus the case.

    My K2 goes after iPad arrives. I'm sure there'll be additional price pressure by that time but that's okay - need it until then.

    it's a little sad in truth. 10 years ago I think e-ink devices could've done some real damage in the marketplace.
