Amazon Says It Has Sold 'Millions' of Kindles in 73 Days
Amazon's Kindle Team posted an official notice in its Kindle Community forum thanking its e-reader customers. While Amazon has never released the number of Kindles it has sold, the post proclaimed that the online retailer already has sold "millions" in this quarter alone.
The post read: "Thanks to you, in just the first 73 days of this holiday quarter, we've already sold millions of our all-new Kindles with the latest E Ink Pearl display. In fact, in the last 73 days, readers have purchased more Kindles than we sold during all of 2009. We're grateful for and energized by the overwhelming customer response."
