Amazon has decided to use vending machines to test its range of Kindle products in the outer world. The Kindle Kiosk, as it is called, may just be the thing the geeks need to get out of their comfort zone.
Jeff Bezos’ Amazon is expanding into the retail sector. Its Kindle Kiosks will be installed at various spots such as airports and commercial malls. They are like chocolate vending machines with the only difference being that it is Kindle products and services they will be dispensing.
The things on sale from within the machines will include: the Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle paper white, the PowerFast Adaptor and e-books as well as covers for the gadgets. The first and second of these items cost about $380 and $20 respectively. This is not a bad bargain when you think about it. The first such kiosk was seen at Las Vegas airport.
Amazon has a way of attracting customers. With its new physical approach of retail therapy, it is headed in the right direction as far as sales and profits are concerned. The company feels it is a great honor to serve its valued clientele via its products at various venues. The kiosks are of the same kind which is to be found in Amazon’s pop up stores throughout the holiday season.
Amazon wants to expand its domain by going beyond online transactions. After all, the real world is a much more interesting place to explore reality itself rather than sticking with the boring and monotonous online world of vicarious entertainment and education.
