Staples Gets the Kindle

share on:

Amazon is slowly offering its Kindle eReader through other leading retailers—the latest of which is office supply chain Staples.

Staples said today it will sell all 3 versions of the Kindle including the $139 Wi-Fi (6-inch) model and the Kindle 3G (6-inch) for $189 plus the Kindle DX with the larger 9.7-inch screen at $379, said the AP.

Target began selling the Kindle in June and J&R Computer and Music World received the Kindle DX a month ago. HMS Host stores in airports also sell the Kindle.

An Amazon spokesman said in July, “Ideally we want to sell Kindle where customers want to buy it. So we will work on expanding our retailer network.”

Staples has the rare privilege of selling all 3 Kindles. Target only sells the 6-inch models and J&R only sells the larger DX through its stores, but not its Web site.
