Amazon officially announces the Kindle Unlimited service

Amazon Kindle Unlimited

Only yesterday did we talk about Amazon’s unlimited Kindle service with the web page going up ahead of schedule. And today, the retailer has officially launched the service dubbed as Kindle Unlimited with a goal of providing unlimited number of eBooks and audiobooks (via Audible). The service will only set you back by $9.99 per month, which is perhaps the highlight of this feature.

To get customers started with the service, Amazon also has a 30-day free trial service, much like the recently launched Prime Music service. Although Amazon has over 600,000 books on offer, only those with the Kindle Unlimited badge will be eligible under this bracket. So you can’t exactly get any book available on Amazon right now. You can watch Amazon’s complete introduction video here.

This should motivate other eBook retailers to follow suit in the coming days as Amazon is evidently one of the biggest names in the business right now and a move like this could potentially take the competition out of business. Does a plan like this make you more driven towards Amazon’s eBook service? Let us know below.
