Kindle Sets New Sales Records This Christmas Season

Amazon was pleased to announce today that they’ve sold millions of Kindles this holiday season. Only, they were less than specific about how many they sold.

Without actual numbers, it’s difficult to say what the rest of Amazon’s news really means. But Amazon did also tell us that they sold over a million Kindles a week in December, and that the Kindles held the top 3 spots on the sales charts: Kindle Fire, Touch, and K4, in that order.

Kindle eBook downloads set a new record on Christmas day, and gifting of Kindle eBooks was up 175% over last holiday season.  And Amazon’s good news extends to their other sites, as well. The Kindle is also the best-selling product on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.es and Amazon.it this holiday season.
