Hi there,
Is it just me or have all the old style kindles (the ones with a keyboard rrp £109) vanished into the ether???
I know the all new, singing, dancing and making the toast one has arrived but, what if you WANT a keyboard?
I want a keyboard, but not 3g; I don't see the practicality of negotiating round an on screen keyboard via a bobble and wonder how quickly that will last until it stops working, as the bobble on my mobile periodically does!
So where have all the flowers gone......sorry, old style Kindles gone????
What about the people who want the old style Kindle. The people who want a keyboard but don't want, need or want to pay for 3g?
Is this another case of Amazon thrusting what they want their customers to want down our throats? In short another case of Amazon not listening to their customers!

There is currently one refurbished kindle keyboard wi-fi availaable for £79.99. I should grab it quick, if I were you.

Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display

I went to the kindle store page, then looked at the links at the top of the page.

I wonder if they are currently concentrating on the Kindle-lite, so do not always have stock of the kindle keyboards, but have not actually withdrawn them. It maybe that in a while, when they know how popular the different models are, that they will all be available.

just to point out, the new one is NOT all singing all dancing, it is actually a LOWER spec.

Iminei says:
i have seen that one, but want a NEW one not one that's already had something wrong with it! thank you for that though!
yes, but their stocks of the old stylie kindle cant have mysteriously de-meterialised like magic as the clock ticked past midnight on the 12th, surely shirley?

refurbished does niot necessarily mean there was something wrong with it. It could just mean someone returned it because they didn't like it.

I'm thinking of selling my wifi old style kindle - bought in June - as I would prefer the smaller size of the new one. Loss of keyboard and smaller capacity doesn't bother me at all. But can one sell them on Amazon Marketplace?

I bought a refurbished wifi one for my mum, and when it arrived I couldn't see any difference to the usual one!

"Refurbished" means that it has been repaired and is as good as new. They do work. If you have a replacement kindle you get a refurbished one as far as I know. Other members of my family have bought a refurbished kindle 3G and it is working fine. The refurbs. have the same guarantee as the new ones.

you were lucky, I'm worried about glitches and guarantees, also it would be nice to have something brand spanking new for a change!!

Just teh charger - instructions (or to be more precise the manual) are an 'ebook'.
