***SOLD*** Amazon Kindle WiFi only

Was about to list my Kindle on Craigslist but thought I'd offer it up here first. I just upgraded my Kindle to the new one that has a backlit screen, so I am selling my previous one. It is still the current gen Kindle of the lowest end model. It sells new for $70, I'm knocking $20 off. Here's the link: Kindle e-Reader with Wi-Fi, 6" Display

Here are some details:
- Buttons (not touchscreen)
- WiFi only (no 3G)
- Ad supported - ads appear on the lock screen and a small banner on the home screen. No ads displayed while you're reading a book. I didn't find it obtrusive, but if you don't like it you can pay Amazon $15 or something like that to disable ads.

The condition is pretty good. I'd say "great" except it has one blemish on the screen. The blemish is small, and does not interfere with text while reading, even if you are on the widest margin setting. See the pictures for example.

I love this thing, the only reason I upgraded was to get the one that has a built in light. I actually prefer buttons to touchscreen. It is very light and easy to read even in direct sunlight.

Offering it for $50 flat including shipping to US, or make an offer. I'm also listing it at work on our classifieds there, so I'll update this if it sells. Here's some pics. Sorry, crappy cell phone pics.

Good question, but I'm not sure what the answer is. On a previous kindle, it would not read PDF natively, but it was as easy as emailing the pdf to an Amazon address which would convert it an send it back. I think the newer version (aka, the one I'm selling) reads PDF natively, but since I haven't done it, buyer beware... I'm sure google can tell you.

It is now listed on ebay, so this listing may close at any time.
