Kindle with Special Offers plus 3G is here!

This is one I have been waiting for! Kindle 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi with Special Offers is here!

What is this new Kindle? It is still the latest generation, with 3G not just wifi and has the latest Special Offers version.

- It is sponsored so costs $25 less than the regular version
- You get sponsored screensavers and small ads at the bottom of your home page (not on the book pages)
- You can set preferences on the type of screensavers you want (example, more nature, fewer cars etc)
- You receive special offers, such as $10 credit when ordering books from a selection; 1/2 price gift cards; reduced price covers etc. I saw one recently that was: apply for an Amazon visa card and get a $100 gift card.

So, is this getting confusing?  A summary of the latest generation and past generation Kindles for sale on Amazon
