Kindle to be sold in airports

From the press release:

Starting June 28, travelers will find the Amazon Kindle for sale in HMSHost branded stores-Simply Books and Authors Bookstores at airports across the country. HMSHost, a world leader in travel shopping and dining, announced today its agreement with Amazon to be the first and only travel retailer of the best selling electronic innovation that is changing the way people buy and read books.

It's actually not all that many airports:

  • Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson
  • John Wayne (Orange County)
  • Charlotte Douglas International
  • Salt Lake City
  • Dallas Ft. Worth
  • San Diego International
  • George Bush Houston Intercontinental
  • Mineta San Jose International
  • Miami International
  • Tampa International
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul

The Sony Reader is available in quite a few more airports than that. But it's in a high tech vending machine, though, not a store (at least in the US). Igorsk said that he had seen the Sony Reader in the Amsterdam airport at a Capi store.
