Amazon announced today that they had broken another record in terms of Kindle sales this holiday season. The Kindle has been a wildly popular line up products from Amazon and with the latest release it is not surprising to see that they’re getting even more popular. The number this time was 1 million sales per week, it has never been done before but this time it happened.
The Kindle has been selling consistently since it came out and the Kindle Fire tablet has been as well; obviously thanks to the holiday season each of these sold even more rapidly which is definitely what helped get Amazon to the 1 million sales per week category. Ebooks from Amazon and all across the board also saw significant increases in sales this holiday season with a reported increase of nearly 200% in many cases. It is quite amazing to see the speed with which eBooks and the corresponding readers have grown but it appears that they are here to stay.
Amazon is no doubt thrilled about the new sales record for the Kindle lineup and other retail stores and online sellers have reported similar sales records. This is great news all across the board as it means lower prices and a stronger economy, plus it shows that Amazon’s Kindle Fire truly does stand a chance at winning the ever popular tablet wars involving so many Android tablets and the iPad.
