Thank you Kindle customers!
Thanks to you, in just the first 73 days of this holiday quarter, we've already sold millions of our all-new Kindles with the latest E Ink Pearl display. In fact, in the last 73 days, readers have purchased more Kindles than we sold during all of 2009. We're grateful for and energized by the overwhelming customer response.
It's about time Amazon has finally come out and said something about their Kindle sales. Most have assumed that since Amazon hadn't released sales figures previously, the Kindle was a dud. Now there are at least some figures to back up their "best selling" claims.
This seems to prove that Kindle is indeed a fine alternative to the iPad as a dedicated reader.
