GeekWire spotted something quite strange during their visit to CES this year, they spotted a "Kindle Kiosk" in the McCarran airport in Las Vegas. According to staff at the airport, the machine had been installed just as CES was kicking off.

The machine was installed at the airport as Amazon wants to try and get tech-savvy visitors leaving the city to grab a Kindle on their way out. The vending machine had the Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle Paperwhite and the normal Kindle e-Reader on offer. It also sold covers and power adapters, so that you could trick up your Kindle before you took off.


What do you think about buying a tablet from a vending machine? I think Amazon is really thinking outside of the box here, not only are they using drones to deliver goods to consumers, but now tablets from vending machines?
