Amazon has sold more Kindle 3s than any other product since the company began. Amazon announced today that the Kindle 3 surpassed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as the the best-selling product in Amazon’s history.
In August, Amazon announced that the Kindle 3 was its fastest selling Kindle product, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo says that the sale numbers show that the Kindle is resilient to the new tablet market.
“We’re seeing that many of the people who are buying Kindles also own an LCD tablet. Customers report using their LCD tablets for games, movies, and web browsing and their Kindles for reading sessions.”
The tablet market is still relatively new, and as technology gets better and prices get lower, the Kindle will see some more competition in 2011. But for now, the Kindle 3 is the king of the Amazon world.
