Kindle To Be Sold Through Target Stores Starting Sunday

I suppose with the Nook being available at B/N brick-and-mortar stores, and the iPad being retailed from Apple stores and other electronics outlets, Amazon thought they needed a brick-and-mortar retail sales option as well. I guess this makes sense. And the people at Target say they experienced an "overwhelmingly positive" response to the Kindle when it was sales tested in 104 of their locations. Price is $259, the same as with a direct order through Amazon. Check the Boston Globe coverage.
