New Generation Kindle Device Sales Already Surpass Fourth Quarter 2009 – The Peak Holiday Shopping Season and Busiest Time of Year on Amazon

Amazon.com Customers Now Buying More Bestsellers on Kindle Than Paperbacks and Hardcovers Combined–At a Rate of 2 to 1

The new generation Kindle devices are the fastest-selling Kindles of all time and the bestselling products on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Today, Amazon.com announced that sales of the new generation Kindle devices since their introduction have already surpassed total Kindle device sales from October through December 2009.

“It’s still October and we’ve already sold more Kindle devices since launch than we did during the entire fourth quarter of last year–astonishing because the fourth quarter is the busiest time of year on Amazon,” said Steve Kessel, Senior Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “Readers continue to choose Kindle for its all-new electronic ink screen with 50 percent higher contrast, readability in bright sunlight, long battery life of up to one month, light 8.5 ounce form, flexibility to read their books across all major LCD devices and platforms, and low $139 price. It’s clear that this is going to be the biggest holiday for Kindle yet–by far.”

In addition, Kindle book unit sales continue to overtake print on Amazon.com, even while print book sales continue to grow. During the past 30 days, Amazon.com customers purchased more Kindle books than print books–hardcover and paperback combined–for the top 10, 25, 100, and 1,000 bestselling books on Amazon.com.

“For the top 10 bestselling books on Amazon.com, customers are choosing Kindle books over hardcover and paperback books combined at a rate of greater than 2 to 1. Kindle books are also outselling print books for the top 25, 100, and 1,000 bestsellers–it’s across the board,” said Kessel. “This is remarkable when you consider that we’ve been selling hardcover and paperback books for 15 years, and Kindle books for just 36 months.”

Other recent milestones for Kindle include:

  • In the 12 weeks following the introduction of the new generation Kindles, Kindle devices or Kindle-related items such as Kindle books and covers represented 15 of the top 15 bestselling items on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk combined.
  • Amazon sold more than 3 times as many Kindle books in the first nine months of 2010 as in the first nine months of 2009.
  • The Association of American Publishers’ latest data reports that e-book sales grew 193 percent between January and August 2010. Kindle book sales growth during the same period exceeded this rate.

Amazon.com makes big claims about its Kindle reader‘s popularity — but has not backed it up with hard numbers of devices sold. The closest the company came on Thursday was when CEO Jeff Bezos said “millions” of people own the device.

The total number of Kindles out there in users hands posibly hit 3 million sometime in December, before the new Kindle DX with Global Wireless arrived on January, 19.

Bezos also said that Amazon is selling 6 Kindle books for every 10 physical copies.

U.S. Internet retailer Amazon.com Inc said on Thursday that its Kindle sales have already broke a monthly sales record, barely halfway through the month of December.
Amazon says the Kindle was the most wished, the most gifted and the #1 bestselling product across across the retailer’s site.
Amazon also announced yesterday it would sell Kindle (Global Wireless) with free expedited shipping — a contrast with its competitor Barnes & Noble, which has suffered delays in getting its Nook electronic reader into customers’ hands.
