Editorial Reviews

Few newspapers enjoy the prestige and authority of The Wall Street Journal. The Wall Street Journal is where America starts its business day. This daily paper publishes the latest in news from the business and finance world. Additionally, it strives to connect current domestic and international news events to business fluctuations and market changes. It also seeks to inform the educated reader about pressing economic changes and evolution. But the Journal covers more than just business. Its weekend edition covers the activities and interests that readers are most passionate about: travel, art, collecting, fashion, wine, sports and entertainment. Notable columnists include James Taranto, Bret Stephens, Homan W. Jenkins, Jr., Daniel Henninger and Mary O'Grady. Please note this newspaper does not deliver on Sunday.

The Kindle Edition of The Wall Street Journal contains articles found in the print and online editions, but will not include tables and stock quotes. For your convenience, issues are automatically delivered wirelessly to your Kindle starting at 5:00 AM New York City local time. Please note that The Wall Street Journal publishes only Monday through Saturday.

3.0 out of 5 stars Price doesn't make sense May 14, 2008
By Stephen
Format:Kindle Edition
First of all, having the WSJ delivered when I am at home or on the road is a great feature. I like the Kindle Edition enough to want to keep it.

However, I have to agree with others here that say the pricing makes absolutely no sense:

$99/year for the WSJ print edition with the Online Web edition included.

$119.88/year ($9.99/month) for the Kindle edition just doesn't make sense. Especially since the Kindle edition has fewer features, and almost none of the Pictures.

So apparently the extra $20/year is for Whispernet delivery. That makes no sense because I could buy the Web edition and read it through the Kindle Browser for no additional charge.

Amazon, the pricing on this makes no sense. Either get the WSJ people to include the Web edition in the price tag, or lower the price $30 or so per year. Less content for a greater price is simply not a good deal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yep - Good but not Great December 14, 2007
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been giving the kindle version of the WSJ a try for the last week. I'm also currently a print version subscriber, but not an WSJ Online subscriber. I agree with a previous reviewer that this is a good but not great product. Here's what's good:

- Ready for me to read every morning, and I don't have to go outside to get it.
- Includes articles from the Online version at the end. I've not seen anyone comment on this. This is nice, and allows news that breaks after the paper goes to press to be added to the download.
- Easier to read (no fighting with the paper itself)
- Hands stay clean
- Searchable
- At $120 per year, this is a good value vs. the print version at $250 per year. And I don't think comparisons to the cost of WSJ online are valid. The kindle version can go with you and be read anywhere, just like the paper version. The online version cannot.
- No ads

Here's what I need to see to call it great (are you reading this WSJ?):

- The What's News section. NO IDEA why this is not included now. Makes no sense. No pictures - that I understand. But why the What's News section is not included is beyond me.
- I want every article to have a small lead-in after the headline like what is included with the articles found on page one of every section. This gives me some idea of what the article is about because the article headline is not always descriptive enough. Even if you just give me the first sentence... With the paper version you can quickly scan the the first few sentences to see if this is an article of interest. Can't do this with the way the current kindle version of the paper is produced.
- I do miss the the pictures, althought the famous WSJ line drawing head shots are included. Would like to see some pictures eventually.

Ultimately, I think I will convert to the kindle edition. If some of my wish list items above are added, it will be a no-brainer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Price increase kills it! May 23, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
It was really nice to have the WSJ delivered electronically to my Kindle, but the recent price increase to $14.99 a month really kills the concept.
The original price was $9.99 per month, or $120 per year...a slight premium to the $103 you would pay for the online version. It was worth it at that price for the convenience of having it on the Kindle. With the recent price increase of 50% to $14.99 per month, or $180 per year, it really is not worth it. I also can't imagine what their justification is for charging a 75% premium for the Kindle version. Finally, it seems rather predatory of them to initially price it at $9.99 and then increase it to $14.99 after getting a bunch of people to spend the money for the device...we are now a captive audience and it seems they are going to extract whatever they can from us. Don't buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars $14.99? Bye-bye WSJ Kindle Edition.... May 23, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I've owned the Kindle 2 for a couple of months now and have been a subscriber to the WSJ Kindle edition since I got the device - I let my print+online subscription lapse and was glad to stop throwing a paper newspaper into the recycling bin every day. At $9.99/month, I was already paying a bit more for the Kindle subscription than my $110 print+online subscription had cost me, but it didn't seem too bad: a little less content, a little more convenience, basically a wash. I'm unhappy in principle with the DRM (and would never, ever buy a Kindle book from Amazon for that reason alone) but in the case of a newspaper subscription it's barely tolerable; again, the physical equivalent of the paper would be going into the trash at the end of the day anyway.

A sudden price increase of FIFTY PERCENT for an unchanged product, however, seems unjustified to me. Obviously the cost of delivering the WSJ to the Kindle hasn't just gone up $5/month. I'm sure this is just playing around with the demand curve, but in my case it's pretty elastic. I can read the WSJ at work - it's a little less convenient than browsing it on my Kindle in the subway, but not $5/month less convenient. Accordingly, I will be canceling in two renewal periods when the price for existing customers goes up, unless Amazon/WSJ retract this increase and keep the existing price.

What with this, and the sudden increase of wireless document delivery from 10 cents per document to 15 cents per rounded-up megabyte (a huge increase if you send large documents!) I'm liking my Kindle a lot less nowadays (and no longer recommending it enthusiastically to everyone I meet). The reasonable 10cents/document fee and the relatively reasonable $9.95/month WSJ subscription fee were major factors in my purchasing the Kindle.

$14.99 a month for the WSJ from $9.99. No Way!
I received a Kindle for my birthday in May. I checked the price of a Kindle WSJ subscription; and it was $9.99 per month. It's now $14.99. Up 50% in a week. That's crazy. I can get 56 weeks of the journal on paper for $119. 56 weeks on the Kindle 2 would cost me $194.87. That is a $75 difference.... Read More

Kindle Fire and WSJ
I agree with you that magazines and newspapers are the number one reason for me to consider the Kindle Fire. I really want the online version of the Wall Street Journal similiar to iPad. Is this too much to ask?

Is the Kindle WSJ Edition the Complete Paper?
it's the whole paper - but for some reason some articles will appear in the NOW edition and not in the regular one - and when they do, then they appear again the next day in the regular edition. Bottom line it's all there but sometimes on a different day. I would bet that the print edition and... Read More

Isn't WSJ Kindle cheaper than paper? what to do?
I purchased the Kindle to get WSJ. IMHO, it justifies the cost, is much easier to read on the Kindle, and is ready when I head to the gym at 5:45 each day. Go for it!
