Or so we are led to believe, as Amazon has more or less rolled out the actual figure of how many Kindles the company has moved overall. Their most recent announcement says, “for the third week in a row, customers are purchasing well over 1 million Kindle devices per week.” I guess that gives away not too much, and yet just enough for us to figure out that it sells around 4 million Kindles each month if the momentum keeps up. Of course, bear in mind that the 1 million figure does not mean it is just the Kindle Fire alone, as it encompasses of the entire Kindle family, including a dedicated e-book reader like the Kindle Touch.
Amazon did say that the Kindle Fire is the most popular item on Amazon ever since it rolled out nearly 3 months ago, citing that “Kindle Fire sales increased week over week for each of the past three weeks.” Do you think the momentum behind overall Kindle sales will continue throughout the holiday season, or will it peter off in a couple of weeks’ time?
