Amazon have been giving themselves a pat on the back this morning, revealing that they’ve been selling their Kindle eReader devices by the buckeltload.
While many analysts believed that the rise of the tablet would mean the demise of eReaders, Amazon’s Kindles continue to sell like hot cakes. With a brand new range revealed, Amazon saw its “best Black Friday ever”, with Kindle sales “increasing 4x over last year”.
Amazon never reveal exact sales figures, but Dave Limp, Kindle VP previously stated that “Even before the busy holiday shopping weekend, we’d already sold millions of the new Kindle family.”
Amazon have also stated once again that their Kindle Fire tablet computer remains the bestselling product on Amazon.com. It’s been two months now since the tablet was revealed, and the Kindle Fire has been the top seller for the retailer ever since.
With today noted annually as Cyber Monday (one of the biggest days of the year for online shopping), you can expect plenty more cash flowing into Amazon’s coffers via Kindle sales.
