Target will soon stop selling the Amazon Kindle line of e-readers and tablets, the retailer confirmed Wednesday.
Target representative Molly Snyder said the company, which began carrying the Kindle in its physical stores nearly two years ago, is "phasing out Kindles and Amazon- and Kindle-branded products in the spring of 2012." Tech blog The Verge was the first to report the news, citing a leaked internal Target memo.
Target (TGT, Fortune 500) declined to comment on the specific date that Kindles will disappear from its shelves. The Verge's memo pegged May 13 as the last day for Kindle shipments to Target stores.
