Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos had his Steve Jobs moment this week, unveiling a slew of new Kindles, a new Silk browser and even a Newsstand. (Here’s a handy comparison chart of the Kindles, and here’s a roundup of all the media coverage and analysis.) The big point was that Amazon was offering up a new Kindle Fire tablet that was priced starting at just $199, a steep undercutting of the Apple iPad, which starts at $499. So what’s your plan this holiday season? Will you be getting one of these Kindles for yourself or a loved one? Or are you sticking with regular printed books?
