Amazon to sell Kindle through Currys, PC World

Advancing onto the high street

Dixons' stores are to sell Amazon's popular Kindle e-book reader.

Amazon already makes the Kindle - in both its Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-plus-3G versions - available on the high street through John Lewis shops.

Like John Lewis, Dixons will only sell Kindles through PC World and Currys bricks'n'mortar outlets, not online.

Prices are the same, whoever you buy a Kindle from. The Wi-Fi model is £111, the 3G-equipped version £152.

So much for competition. ®
