If any Android device manufacturer has a reason to celebrate this holiday season, I guess it would be Amazon. The company announced today that 2011 was “the best holiday ever” for the Kindle family because of the millions of Kindle devices (Kindle Fire and other Kindle e-readers) sold by the company. However, Amazon hasn’t released any exact figures at this point in time so “millions” could theoretically mean ninety-nine million or two million.
What we do know is that it is pretty pleased at how well its devices have been selling as Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO, was quoted as saying: “We are grateful to our customers worldwide for making this the best holiday ever for Kindle.”
