You can get a Kindle DX for $359 *now*. It was $489 just a week ago.

Companies like Spring have a real problem now. B&N and Amazon have alternate revenue streams tied to their hardware-so they can be more flexible with pricing schemes.

It was fine when B&N and Amazon both wanted to make profits on both hardware and eBooks-it kept the hardware pricing somewhat competitive. If they are shifting to a subsidized model, those companies without anything to help subsidize are going to have to compete on something other than price.
