Looks like Amazon has made a deal with AT&T to sell the widely popular Kindle E-Reading Device in US AT&T stores starting March 6th. The Kindle is steadily moving ahead at the front runner in the battle to be the most successful ebook reader.
It was just last June that Target announced they would be selling Amazon’s coveted Kindle. A few months later, Walmart announced they would be selling the Nook (Barnes & Noble‘s electronic book reader). I think we know who won that round, given public perception of quality re: Target vis-à-vis Walmart.
AT&T Stores are the next logical retail location for the Kindle, due to the free 3G connectivity over AT&T’s wireless network. No other ebook reader on the market can really compete with that. At least, not yet.
