Amazon Reports Record Kindle Sales4 Dec, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
The holiday shopping weekend was the best ever in terms of sales of Amazon’s Kindle tablets, with more consumers buying more Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers than ever before.
Thanks to discounting on Cyber Monday, the Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch and Kindle Fire HD were the top-selling items on Amazon.com during the five-day shopping period.
“We’re excited that so many customers have chosen Kindle this holiday season —and it’s just getting started,” said Neil Lindsay, VP for Amazon Kindle. “Our new Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers are the best we’ve ever built, and we can’t wait for customers to unwrap their gifts this holiday.”
