Limited Time offer for Kindle Devices at Amazon

Update 14/Mar/17: The offer has ended now.

For all the book lovers out there, Amazon is having a limited time offer for Kindle e-readers. The deal is for the Standard Kindle, the Kindle Paperwhite, and the Kindle Voyage. With the offer, Amazon is giving away each of them at $20 off their regular price.

Is there a catch in this deal? Well, the devices with the offer has 'Special offers'. What it means is that the devices will display promotional material (advertisements, offers) in it's lockscreen, and at the bottom of the home screen. These advertisements would not have any impact to your reading (as while reading, no advertisements will be displayed).  So, the deal seems quite good.

I haven't got a Kindle device with special offers, so can't comment with personal experience on how the advertisements looks like actually. But I will post a photo on how they look like as soon as I get one.

As for the devices, my favorite would be the Kindle Paperwhite. Out of the 3 devices, for me, it offers the best balance between the price and features. Unlike the Standard Kindle, it has a backlight - 4 LEDs that can help you read in both a dark setting, and a setting with too much light such as outdoors in sunlight. It also has better resolution - 300 ppi vs. 167 ppi. The Kindle Voyage has better lighting, and with an adaptive lighting sensor that adjusts the screen brightness to the surrounding light. The Voyage also has 2 touch buttons on the edges to turn the pages.

The offer might not last long, so get your Kindle devices soon. Check the following links.

Get then soon while the offer stands!
