Amazon Black Friday deal: $89 Kindle 2

Amazon will be selling its "older" 3G-only Kindle for $89 on Black Friday. We don't know how long the sale will last, but it's an intriguing deal.

Amazon will have a limited supply of $89 second-gen Kindles on Black Friday. Amazon

Alert. Amazon just slipped a little Black Friday deal onto its Facebook page: $89 for its second-generation Kindle .

Here's the full text of the message:

    Black Friday Deal: This Friday, 11/26, you can get our previous generation Kindle for $89! Our previous generation Kindle uses the old E Ink technology (the same E Ink as in the current Nook). Our all-new Kindle uses the latest generation E Ink (Pearl) for 50% percent better contrast, and is available at the everyday low price of ...$139.

We don't know how long the deal will last (it starts at 9 a.m. PT) but the price seems somewhat enticing. You don't get built-in Wi-Fi, but you do get 3G wireless, and while the contrast level certainly is better on the latest Kindle, the screen is quite readable.

We're not sure how it would go over to gift someone an "old" model, but hey, certain people might not know the difference.

What do you guys think? Deal or no deal?
