Potential Kindle customers now have 3,200 more locations where they can check out the Amazon device.
Amazon has inked a deal with Walmart to make the boxed retail titan the latest chain to feature Amazon's popular e-reader. Amazon has made similar arragments with Staples, Best Buy, and Target.

What better way to do that than team up the big daddy of retail itself?
