Best Buy will sell Amazon Kindle Best Buy has announced today that it will begin selling the popular Amazon Kindle in the coming months, bringing the e-reader to thousands of brick-and-mortar shops.
The company said all the e-readers it carries will be placed together so consumers can compare. Best Buy carries the B&N Nook and all three variations of Sony's Reader line.

Best Buy will carry the $140 Kindle Wi-Fi and the latest generation 3G/Wi-Fi model, which sells for $190. The Nook's rival players cost $150 and $200. Sony's players, on the other hand, range from $180 to $250.

Says the retailer (via IW): "Our goal is to help people choose the device that's right for them by providing the broadest selection of popular e-readers of any retailer, in one convenient place that enables people to easily see, touch, try and buy."

Additionally, Best Buy has said that later in the year they will begin selling the Amazon Kindle DX, with its large 9.7-inch display, for $290.

It's convenient for sure, maybe it will help out with Amazon's stock issue as well. Mass produce more than you currently need get Best buy to hold em in their warehouses so they can sell more during the holidays.
