Staples is going to start selling Amazon’s Kindle this fall. The office supply retailer will carry the new Kindle, the Kindle DX and the Kindle 3G. Staples will also carry Kindle accessories.

Jevin Eagle, executive vice president of merchandising and marketing at Staples sounded thrilled. He has this statement: “As part of our efforts to offer customers a wide range of top technology products and services at amazing values, the new Kindle is a natural fit.”

Kindle began selling in Target stores earlier this summer. The AP has more: “The announcement Tuesday follows the device’s debut at Target Corp. stores in June. While Amazon.com previously sold the Kindle only online, it has been expanding its retail presence to stay competitive with a growing array of other electronic book readers appear at retail stores.”
