Amazon to Offer Cheaper Kindle With Ads

MarketWatch: Inc. said Monday afternoon that it will begin selling a cheaper version of its Kindle e-reader device that is supported with advertisements early next month.

The ad-supported Kindle will cost $114 — $25 less than the cheapest Kindle currently available — and will be available on May 3.

Free with ads would be cool, and interesting. $25 off, though? Feels nickel-and-dimey to me.
