Amazon Rolls Out Kindle Vending Machines

Amazon Vending MachineAmazon has started rolling out Kindle Kiosk vending machines to sell its Kindle Fire tablets and accessories in selected US locations, according to a Geekwire reporter, who spotted a recently-installed unit at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.

While the vending machines have been around since November, notably at Amazons pop-up stores in US malls, this represents a wider rollout.

A spokesperson confirmed to Geekwire that the Kiosks have become available at a variety of locations, including event venues, shopping centres and airports, and the machines placement – where its likely to catch the eye of people on their way back from CES – seems like a statement of intent from the retailer.
