Wal-Mart To Carry Kobo Wireless eReader

Wal-Mart is going eReader crazy. This morning the big box retailer said that they would start selling Barnes & Noble’s Nook eReader and now Kobo just announced that Wal-Mart will be selling Kobo’s new Wireless eReaders.

From the Kobo blog: “On Monday we started shipping the first Kobo Wireless eReaders to customers who pre-ordered the device in Canada, and starting next week it will be available for purchase at Borders and one of the largest discount department stores in the U.S. – Walmart! Building on our relationship with Walmart Canada, Kobo’s Wireless eReader will be available in 2500 US Walmart stores across the country starting next week.”

With iPads, Nooks and Kobos in Wal-Mart stores and Kindles in Staples and Target, eReaders are gearing up to be the holiday gift of the year.
