Amazon Selling Over a Million Kindles Per Week
While Amazon continues to not release exact sales figures for any of its versions of the Kindle, the company announced Thursday that it is selling over a million Kindle devices per week.
The online retail giant added that the Kindle Fire tablet remains "the #1 bestselling, most gifted, and most wished for" among all products sold on the site, a spot it has held since it was announced 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," Dave Limp, Vice President of Amazon Kindle, said as part of the announcement.
