Kindle in Staples. When???

Hello readers,
Today Amazon announced they will start selling Kindle in Staples. I really wanted to try it out before committing to a purchase. When will they become available in Staples. Or are they already available?

Thanks.

I'm not sure but I know that the Kindle 2 is at Target stores.

I would guess sooner rather then later. The best part is that Staples is going to be selling the DX. The article I read specifally included the DX price point. Finally people will get a chance of holding a DX. Maybe that will help folks realize that it is not that heavy and a really nice device.

I have actually preordered DX already but they say it will ship out on Sept 15th or smth. I wonder if Staples will have it earlier.

If Amazon is out of them I doubt that Staples will have them. The only way that Staples would have DX's when Amazon does not is if Staples already had the units in the stores. Since this was just announced that is not a possibility.

The Press Release says "in the fall".
That could be as early as Sept 23 and as late as Dec 21st.

I couldn't find anything on Amazon's News Releases page, but here's a link to the WSJ article.

Is this world-wide, or only in the US? We have Staples stores in the UK, too.

Here's the Press Release.

It speaks of "all stores nationwide" and "early this fall".

So, it looks like international stores will carry them later.
(Still, you get cheaper ebooks in the UK.)

December would be Winter 2010. I suspect we will see them in the middle to end of September.

Still in Target? It looks like they blew through the Kindle 2 … and Kindle 3 is not shown as for sale there (searching target.com that is).

However — between the 1500 Staples and 1700 target stores … that’s a distribution network of 3,000 stores. It also suggests that the Kindle 3 is NOT being subsidized at current retail prices as some were claiming. Wholesale to Amazon is probably no more than 50% of retail.

And if they are doing this volume — no wonder no other vendor has yet formally announced a unit featuring the very much improved Pearl e-ink screens. Amazon must have taken all supplies for an initial period.

I thought I had read that Target was going to be selling the K3 but that they would get the K3 sometime in September. I have not checked my local Target but I have read that others have been to Target and that they are still showing the K2 for $189 and a sign that says they will be getting the K3 soon.

Kindle 3 will be available soon at Target.

The revision for the aisle which adds the new models to the current set is due on 9/12. Generally the product comes in the week before a revision sets, so you should begin seeing K3s at Target within 1-2 more weeks.
