Best Buy, the nation's largest consumer electronics retailer, plans to start selling Amazon.com's Kindle, placing the electronic reader side-by-side with competitors in time for the holiday shopping season. Best Buy said that it will display all the e-readers it carries at the end of aisles to let customers compare the products. When the Kindle hits store shelves, it will join Barnes & Noble's Nook and Sony's Reader. Best Buy carries all three models of the Reader, the Touch, Pocket and Daily editions. The retailer plans to carry the Wi-Fi-only Kindle and the 3G/Wi-Fi versions, which cost $140 and $190, respectively. The Nook has similar models that are about $10 more expensive. However, Sony is the most expensive, with its latest models ranging from $180 to $250.
