AT&T to carry Amazon's 3G Kindle in stores
Only days before the expected iPad 2 announcement, AT&T has announced that the tablet will have a competitor in its company stores. Starting March 6, the Dallas-based phone company will carry the 3G-enabled Amazon Kindle in AT&T retail locations across the country.
The e-reader will sell for its current price, $189. It is the first dedicated e-reader that AT&T will offer in its stores. The Kindle is the market's best-selling e-reader and the best-selling item in the history of Amazon.com.
The cheaper, WiFi version of the e-reader will not be available in AT&T stores. Models of the Kindle are also sold at Best Buy, Staples and Target.
