Amazon Reports 3rd Generation Kindle Success

December 30, 2010 in amazon kindle, ereader review, ereader technology

JLeon / Creative Commons LicenseAmazon.com reports that the third generation Kindle is their bestselling product of all time, even beating out Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, book seven of the series.  It’s quite a feat for Amazon to have the new Kindle as their bestselling product in Amazon history.  In fact, customers ordered 13.7 million items worldwide on November 29, 2010.  That translates to a record-breaking 158 items per minute.  And that means big bucks for Amazon.

Why do customers like the Kindle?  Readers seem to enjoy the unlimited access of the Amazon library.  They also like the e-ink which is easy on the eyes and can be read in sunlight, especially important for the beach.  Most important of all, the Kindle is affordable.  At only $139, it’s a great gift … affordable enough for a Valentine’s Day splurge for your honey or for mom’s upcoming birthday.

Ereaders prove to be the hot new item this year.  Everyone wants one.  If you want a Kindle, make sure to order from the right place.  You can purchase your Kindle online or find the best Kindle deal possible.  Either way, you’re ensuring a fantastic present for yourself or a lucky loved one.
