While Kindles have been enjoyed in Best Buys for a little while now, an official announcement at the end of August confirmed that the prodigal eReading device from Amazon would be making an appearance in Staples locations nation wide some time in the Fall. And now that Fall is officially upon us, an official date has been finally figured out. And for those waiting to check out the device in Staples stores, you won’t have to wait much longer.
The Amazon Kindle, in all three of its variations, will be landing in Staples stores beginning this Sunday, October 10th. The Kindle and Kindle 3G will be the only two models available on Sunday, so if you were hoping to get your hands on one of the Kindle DX models, you’ll have to wait until about mid-November. Staples is pulling out all the stops,too, as they’ve confirmed that accessories will be sold alongside the Kindle models.
If you’ve been waiting for the Kindle to land in more stores so you can actually interact with one before you pull the trigger on a purchase, Staples will have interactive displays for the Kindle units, and they should be in every store where the eReader will be sold. Potential customers will be able to use the Kindle for a short while, to help them determine if they’d like to pick one up. So if you don’t have a Target or Best Buy around you, and Staples is your last hope, you’re in luck. Prices will remain the same: $139 for the WiFi-only model, and $189 for the 3G+WiFi model. As for the DX, that will still run you $379 for the 9.7-inch device.
