Flash! Kindle DX on sale in brick-and-mortars: tablet coming?
Thanks to Nelson T. Champine in the Amazon Kindle community for the heads-up on this!
Best Buy has an in-store only sale on the Kindle DX Graphite for $299 ($80 off).
Nelson also mentioned Staples, but I’m not seeing that.
If it is at more than one chain, it suggests that Amazon is driving the price (although the DX is not reduced at Amazon at time of writing).
That, in turn, may be to make room for another product. While that could be a new Kindle DX, it could also be an Amazon Android tablet. There have been several indicators that one might be coming (Amazon job ads, the Amazon Android Appstore, Amazon having bought a touch screen company some time ago).
I’ll keep my eyes open and let you know. I’m champing at the mental bit for an Amazon tablet!
