Amazon (AMZN -0.3%) launches a cheaper version of its Kindle e-reader that comes with on-screen ads. The new Kindle 3G with Special Offers costs $164, $25 less than the ad-free equivalent, and is now available for shipment; it comes with both WiFi and 3G access. The ads appear as the screensaver when the Kindle is turned off. (PR)
