Amazon in the last calender year has gone to great lengths to get its flagship Kindle e-Readers in a retail setting. They ironed out agreements with mainly USA stores such as Staples, Bestbuy and Target and now have coerced At&T to stock its Kindle 3G e-readers in all of their retail locations nationwide.
Starting March 6 2011 you will be able to visit most locations of AT&T and get the 3G model, but the cheaper WIFI only edition will not be seen. The popular Kindle 3 Graphite is quickly becoming one of the most impressive e-readers on the market, allowing for faster page turns, social networking and a slew of other features. This is one of the most highly updated e-readers in Amazon history, issuing updates almost every month to enhance the capabilities of the device. Part of the reason of the success of the new Kindle, is that it slimmer then previous iterations and uses a e-Ink Pearl screen to get better resolution.
“We’re excited to work with AT&T to offer Kindle 3G to AT&T customers across the country,” said Mike McKenna, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “Customers tell us they love Kindle 3G because of its light weight, battery life of up to one month, and advanced paper e-ink display that works in direct sunlight. Customers love being able to think of a book and be reading it in less than 60 seconds thanks to AT&T’s wireless network.”
The Amazon Kindle 3G will maintain the same price point as found online, for $189.00 you can have yours today! Also if you live outside of the USA, try our retail partner Shop e-Readers for international shipping of the Kindle 3G, Kindle WIFI and Kindle DX.
