AT&T will start selling Amazon Kindle 3G on March 6
AT&T will include the Kindle in its connected devices section. The Kindle 3G will connect to the Web over Wi-Fi and AT&T's 3G network, allowing users to wirelessly download books, magazines, newspapers, and blogs on the 6-inch device. It sells for $189 and can hold up to 3,500 books.
"Amazon has without question pioneered the eReader space with Kindle, and it's exciting to not only connect this device through our network, but now offer it in our stores to readers around the country," Glenn Lurie, president of emerging devices at AT&T, said in a statement. "As the first dedicated eReader offered in our stores, we are confident the Kindle will be an attractive addition to our in store connected devices lineup."
A recent update to the Kindle software added features like public notes and real page numbers to the e-book reader.
AT&T also sells the Apple iPad, which includes an e-book component. The Kindle, meanwhile, is also available at Staples, Best Buy, Target, and via Amazon's online store. Amazon also offers a $139 6-inch Wi-Fi Kindle and the $379 Kindle DX, which has a 9.7-inch screen.
