Seattle - All of the products in
Amazon's entire new Kindle family, including the Kindle Fire tablet, will be
available Nov. 15 not only through Amazon but through 16,000 U.S. stores, the
company announced.

The devices will be available
through Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Staples, Sam's Club, RadioShack, Office
Depot and several other retailers. The devices are the $79 Kindle e-reader, the
$99 Kindle Touch e-reader, the $149 Kindle 3G e-reader and the $199 Kindle Fire
tablet.

One of the new Kindle devices,
the $79 Kindle e-reader, has been available in stores since shortly after its
introduction, Amazon said.

The Kindle Fire, Kindle Touch and
Kindle Touch 3G are currently available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

For its part, Best Buy said it
would have "ample supply of Kindle Fires available" on Nov. 15 and that customers
who pre-ordered Kindle Fire in-store will be able to pick-up their reserved
device in-store.

Amazon sold its previous e-readers
through retailers and through its website.

Previously, an Amazon
spokesperson said the new Kindle products would be available first at Amazon,
then rolled out to other retailers.
