In a never ending process to acquire market share, Amazon starts spreading Kindle love (albeit not for free) in brick and mortar stores, in a move similar with what Barnes and Noble did earlier in the year. No doubt, to make everybody happy for the holidays.
You heard that right, starting Nov 15th, you’ll be able to play and eventually buy any of the Kindle, Kindle Touch, Kindle Touch 3G and the one tablet to rule them all, Kindle Fire at over 16,000 retail locations in US, including Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Staples, Sam’s Club, RadioShack, Office Depot and some smaller ones as well. The prices will be similar with the ones on Amazon’s own website so unless you like paying sales tax, we don’t really see the point for now. Maybe later when Amazon will start collecting local sales taxes for California, we’ll get more into local shopping ourselves.
