Kindle 3G Now Available Through AT&T

AT&T is pleased to announce Friday that it now has the Kindle 3G with special offers in stock in AT&T stores across the US.

AT&T is selling Amazon’s latest and greatest eBook reader for $139, a full $25 less than the regular retail. Customers can also find a selection of Kindle accessories including cases and power supplies.

“With Kindle 3G, you never have to find or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot – you simply download and read books anytime, anywhere,” said Mike McKenna, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “We’re excited that AT&T will be offering its customers Kindle 3G with Special Offers. They will get all the features readers love about Kindle 3G – free 3G wireless, global wireless access, Pearl electronic ink display that’s easy to read even in bright sunlight, access to over 950,000 ‘Buy Once, Read Everywhere’ Kindle books, plus money-saving special offers.”

The Kindeal 3G has both Wifi and 3G, so it can use any ATT cell network in the US. But even though it comes with Wifi, it doesn’t appear to also be able to use ATT mobile hotspots, which can be found in thousand of bookstores, coffee shops, and other retail locations across the US.
