Submission + - Walmart abandons Amazon's Kindle lineup (

kiriath writes: Walmart has followed Target in ceasing to sell the Amazon Kindle product line. Not terribly surprising as Amazon and Walmart are major competitors.

From the article: "We have recently made the business decision to not carry Amazon tablets and eReaders beyond our existing inventory and purchase commitments," Wal-Mart said in a memo sent to store managers on Wednesday. "This includes all Amazon Kindle models current and recently announced."

It would seem that Walmart and other brick and mortar retailers are starting to feel the pains of the ubiquitous online retailer era.
