The Amazon Kindle eBook reader is now available at all Best Buy UK stores and around 400 Carphone Warehouse shops as well. Pricing is the same as buying the device directly from Amazon; £111 for the WiFi-only version or £152 for the WiFi/3G Kindle. Best Buy’s US operation has been offering the Kindle since last year.
Amazon’s third generation Kindle has a 6-inch screen that’s not backlit, giving a similar experience to reading conventional black print on white paper. The device will also be available as a ‘free’ incentive to sign a mobile phone contract.
