Walmart axed the Kindle

September 21, 2012

Walmart PR statement (via All Things D):

“This decision is consistent with our overall merchandising strategy.”

Are they trying to build their own tablet or eReader? It’s unlikely, Walmart is not relying much on the internet to sell their stuffs. But still, they had to see this one coming ever since Amazon made the Kindle. By selling the Kindle(s), Walmart was helping one of their biggest competitors. What surprised me is; what took them so long to realized it now?
