AT&T To Sell the Amazon Kindle

AT&T will soon be joining Staples, Best Buy, Fred Meyer in selling the K3 3G. Starting on March 6th, the latest version of Amazon’s eReader will be available in AT&T wireless stores across the US. There will be display units, and potential customers will get a chance to test drive the unit before they buy. Retail price is the same as elsewhere ($189). AT&T will not be selling the Kindle Wifi (because it doesn’t use AT&T’s network, of course).

Glenn Lurie, VP of Emerging Devices, had this to say about the announcement: “Amazon has without question pioneered the eReader space with Kindle, and it’s exciting to not only connect this device through our network, but now offer it in our store to readers around the country.”
