Amazon Selling 1 million Kindles a Week


Amazon.com today announced that Kindle devices remain the hottest products this holiday season ? for the third week in a row, Amazon's customers are purchasing well over 1 million Kindle devices per week.

In addition, Kindle Fire remains the #1 bestselling product across the millions of items available on Amazon.com since its introduction 11 weeks ago.

"Kindle Fire is the most successful product we've ever launched - it's the bestselling product across all of Amazon for 11 straight weeks, we've already sold millions of units, and we're building millions more to meet the high demand. In fact, demand is accelerating - Kindle Fire sales increased week over week for each of the past three weeks. People are buying Kindle Fire because it's a simple, fully-integrated service that makes it easy to do the things they love - watch movies, read books and magazines, listen to music, download apps, play games, and surf the web," said Dave Limp, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. "Our family of Kindle e-ink readers are close behind Kindle Fire on the Amazon.com bestseller list. Customers continue to report preferring their Kindle e-reader for long-form reading, and in fact we've seen many customers buy two Kindles - both a Kindle Fire and a Kindle or Kindle Touch - this holiday season."

Kindle Fire offers more than 19 million movies, TV shows, songs, books, magazines, apps and games - such as Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and Angry Birds - as well as free storage of Amazon digital content in the Amazon Cloud, Whispersync for books and movies, a 14.6 ounce design, a color touch screen, a dual-core processor and Amazon Silk web browser - all for only $199.

The $79 latest generation Kindle is for readers around the world who want a light, compact Kindle. Kindle features the same 6-inch electronic ink display that reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.

Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G feature a touch screen that makes it easy to turn pages, search, shop, and take notes - still with all the benefits of the electronic ink display. Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G are also lighter, smaller, offer audio capabilities, such as text-to-speech and deep integration for audiobooks, extra-long battery life and hold thousands of books. Kindle Touch 3G offers the added convenience of free 3G.

This week, Amazon said it would provide a software update to Kindle Fire owners that will fix some of the tablet's issues, such as a finicky touch screen. The company said it would release the over-the-air update in less than two weeks.
