Cheaper Kindle-ing

Amazon Lowers Kindle E-book Reader Price - Seattle Times Lowering the price is good. Increases accessibility and indicates that the "laws" of competetive pricing are starting to take hold. But with the Sony eReader on the shelf at every Target in America, will a $60 price reduction help the Kindle that much? Or is Amazon really beyond reach of the brick & mortar competition? It will be interesting to see how this plays out. The refusal to release sales figures puzzles me, though.
