SEATTLE, Dec 27, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) –(NASDAQ: AMZN)–Amazon.com today announced that the third-generation Kindle is now the bestselling product in Amazon’s history, eclipsing “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7).” The company also announced that on its peak day, Nov. 29, customers ordered more than 13.7 million items worldwide across all product categories, which is a record-breaking 158 items per second.

“We’re grateful to the millions of customers who have made the all-new Kindle the bestselling product in the history of Amazon — surpassing Harry Potter 7,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO. “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. They report preferring Kindle for reading because it weighs less, eliminates battery anxiety with its month-long battery life, and has the advanced paper-like Pearl e-ink display that reduces eye-strain, doesn’t interfere with sleep patterns at bedtime, and works outside in direct sunlight, an important consideration especially for vacation reading. Kindle’s $139 price point is a key factor — it’s low enough that people don’t have to choose.”

2010年11月29日(奇しくも私たち夫婦の婚約記念日だ 笑)にはアマゾン全体で1370万個の注文が入ったというからすごい。(1秒あたり158個の売上)

Amazon Holiday Fact

Tech CrunchはBloombergが2010年のKindleの売上が800万台を達成する見通しだと報告していることを紹介した。

確かに最近よくキンドルを見かけるようになった。しかし、それと同じくらいかそれ以上にiPadを持っている人をよく見かける。(そういえば、こないだ飛行機で隣に座ったのがたまたまハリウッドの女優さんとそのご主人だったのだが、Nookを使っていたので思わず話しかけて仲良くなり、空港から家まで連れて帰ってもらったという思わぬハプニングがあった 笑) 電子出版は着実に浸透しているようだ。
