Carphone Warehouse to chuck in free Kindle with phone buys

3G e-book reader almost as cheap

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Carphone Warehouse has begun selling Amazon's Kindle. Ditto CW's joint venture with the Yanks, Best Buy UK.

You can buy the popular e-book reader, paying for £111 for the Wi-Fi only model and £152 for the version with bundled 3G connectivity.

That's what Amazon charges - and other Kindle sellers, such as John Lewis, Currys and PC World.

But CW said it will give the Kindle away with a variety of phones on two-year contracts, so if you're upgrading your handset anyway, this may be a good opportunity to avail yourself of a gratis e-book reader too.

Unless it's the 3G model you want - that's £15 when bundled with a phone.

CW hasn't yet said which handsets will come accompanied by the Amazon gadget. ®
