Just like in the case of Target, I smell Apple trickery behind this one...

Sad to see the Kindle Fire go, though. :(

Amazon has been doing a good job with disrupting existing retail practices. They have been pissing off a lot of companies lately. Nintendo is one such example, they havent officially sold the 3DS for a year now, and are not slated to carry the Wii U either. And honestly, it doesnt really benefit amazon for being a retailer of products like this, when its more profitable to sell their own products. The margins for retailers for items like these are very small.

People are going to be piss & upset and i know it cause i work in the electronics dept. then i'm going to get why u don't sell KINDLE FIRE any more? Then I'll say you can only get it online if it's still their then I'll say it's because of APPLE. 199$ is a price seller we sell lots of kindles every other day. and NO on doesn't wants to spend 400-600$ on a tablet.

It has nothing to do with Apple. It has to do with Walmart and Amazon being competitors, not Apple and Amazon.
