FishbowlNY Poll Results: Kindle’s Too Pricey For You

Yesterday, we asked you to tell us if you would buy a new Kindle DX. There’s been a lot of buzz about this product in the past few days (most recently the fact that it can’t correctly pronounce Barack Obama‘s name) but everyone is mostly complaining about its price and its release being so soon after the latest Kindle version, the Kindle 2. Here’s the results of our poll:

61% of you said that you would not buy a Kindle DX, although only 16% of you said you wouldn’t be buying the new version because you already have a Kindle of some kind.
29% of you said you would buy a Kindle DX.
And of the 10% that answered “other,” many of you were simply undecided and pointed to price as a major drawback. At least two people said they would consider buying a Kindle DX if the price drops.

As one respondent said, “If it was less expensive, I would buy a Kindle for books…not necessarily news.”
