Staples will sell Amazon.com’s Kindle
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — Office supply retailer Staples Inc. will start selling Amazon.com’s Kindle electronic-book reader this fall.
The announcement Tuesday follows the device’s debut at Target Corp. stores in June. While Amazon.com previously sold the Kindle only only online, it has been expanding its retail presence to stay competitive with a growing array of other electronic book readers appear at retail stores.
Barnes & Noble’s Nook, for instance, is available at its stores, and Best Buy and Borders sell a variety of readers.
Staples sell the three versions of the Kindle at its 1,550 stores: its $139 Kindle with Wi-Fi only, its Kindle 3G for $189 and its pricier Kindle DX with a larger screen for $379.
