Walmart stops selling Amazon Kindle

According to Reuters Wal-Mart will no longer sell the Amazon Kindle eReaders and tablet. Wal-Mart sent a memo to store managers that said: "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 dated Wednesday. "This includes all Amazon Kindle models current and recently announced."

By selling the Kindle, Wal-Mart was supporting the growth of its biggest rival in the online shopping business. The Kindle is sold at cost or even below and Amazon makes money down the road with consumer purchases of content and goods.

It will hurt Amazon a little bit, but not on a grand scale. It is good to have a lot of shelf space for a product like the Kindle, but then you can always buy a Kindle on Amazon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
