Kindle Keyboard 3g for $89

Just went to Best Buy and the shopper has the Kindle Keyboard 3g for $89.
I use it more for reading so what's your opinion:
Kindle Keyboard 3g for $89
kindle fire for $199 or
Playbook for $199. (best buy just dropped the 16gig playbook to $199)

Getting the K3 Keyboard "3G", for $89 is a killer deal...........I'd get it for the lifetime 3G browsing service alone. Just Do It. I'd get it if I didn't already have the wifi.

It may or may not be a good deal of the KK 3G. It all depends if the KK 3G is getting KF8 or not. If the KK 3G is not getting KF8, it's not a good deal at all.

KK 3G won't browse using 3G. All you can do with the 3G is go to Amazon to buy content.

Base on what I know, yes it will....you're thinking of the limitation of the new K4.

My KK 3G browser is open. I check my email and use Google via KK often. And I just changed my battery on it, so there are still some good reasons to buy this version. The newer Kindles are disposable -- no battery change possible.

This is not true. Currently you can browse the web over 3G with the Kindle Keyboard 3G.

You can't do this with the Kindle Touch 3G.

KF8 is Amazon's next file format, which will include most of the features of ePub, that is, HTML4 and CSS, rather than a very limited and customised form of HTML 3.2.

The next K4s apparently include support in firmware already. The KKs will need a firmware update to support it.

Amazon has said that 'all current' kindles will support KF8, but some people wonder whether this includes the KK.

Thxs...pdurannt; I think the the K3 is still a great ereader/bargain. It has a big user base, and I have to believe it will support KF8.
