Amazon has made a deal with Best Buy that will see the retailer carrying the Kindle e-reader in its US outlets.
According to Pocket Lint, the deal will be made just in time for the Christmas period, a time which traditionally sees a spike in consumer electronics sales.
It also represents the first time that the Kindle has been on sale anywhere outside of Amazon’s websites.
“There’s no question that e-readers have found their rightful place in today’s digital lifestyle,” said Best Buy’s senior vice president and general manager of home entertainment, Chris Homeister.
“Our goal is to help people choose the device that’s right for them by providing the broadest selection of popular e-readers of any retailer, in one convenient place that enables people to easily see, touch, try and buy.”
