In an age when most people find it difficult to read anything beyond those stupid 64-character twitter feeds, does it f*cking matter that the Amazon Kindle e-reader is coming to the AT&T retail stores (company-owned only).
Of course, it doesn’t matter.
Amazon’s move to bring the Kindle to AT&T stores is part of the e-tailer’s strategy to make the device more easily available.
Besides Amazon’s online store, Kindle is sold at Staples, Best Buy, BJ’s, J&R (NYC), Fred Meyer and Target stores.
AT&T will start selling the Kindles from March 6.
For the countless schmucks that throng this blog, Kindle connects over both Wi-Fi and AT&T’s mobile 3G broadband network, wirelessly downloads books, magazines, newspapers, blogs and personal documents to a 6-inch, high-resolution electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper.
The wireless plus 3G version costs $189 while the wireless version is $139.
If you believe Amazon, the Kindle can store 3,500 books.
The Kindle Store at Amazon that lets you buy all those e-books to feed your Kindle is said to offer 810,000 books.
