Okay, I went back to the one Walmart that has the eBook display so far (I had to pick my kid up from work). Two other nearby Walmarts didn't have anything set up yet ... so I'm guessing this is going to be a staged roll-out.

There's clamps to hold two eReaders, so you will be able to try them out in the store (no Aura on display yet). The two card slots for the Readers are currently just Auras. The price is $99 and it looks like that's not a sale price. So that means if they go on sale they might be pretty cheap. There's also a hanger spot (I've been saying "slot") for a $30 case.

There are slots for a little over 60 eBook and/or Audiobook title cards. Prices currently ranged from $2.99 to $26.99. A lot of duplicate titles at this point. There's also 18 slots for the gift cards ... eBook gift cards come in increments of $10, $25 and $50. Audiobook subscriptions come in increments of about (a little less) $30, $60 and $120, for three month, six month and one year subscriptions. There's also some kind of Audiobook "Extra" card. Not sure what it's for. Under the "holder" where the actual Auras will be displayed there's a label that describes the features of the Aura and then, underneath, it says "Check out our full line of eReaders on Walmart.com/Ebooks.

I guess that's about it. I've got some pictures I might add in the morning (if there's any interest).

EDIT: Looking at the pictures, it appears the clamp on the right is bigger than the one on the left. So maybe they are going to display something else there (maybe just a random tablet, because the label under this side's clamp said something about the Walmart eBook apps — if you zoom in you can read the label).
