Amazon Reports Best Kindle Sales EVAR on Black Friday

Amazon wants everyone to know today that sales of the various Kindle models on Friday were the best ever. Compared to last year, 4 times as many Kindles moved on Black Friday as ever before. But since we don’t really know how many Kindles sold last year, this year’s boast doesn’t really mean much.

I would estimate that Amazon sold 5 Kindles last Black Friday, and that means that this year they sold 20. That’s a respectable number, and Amazon should be proud.

Joking aside, the Kindle Fire is expected to sell around 5 million units before the end of the year, so it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Amazon sold a hundred thousand or more Kindle Fires and a fair number of Kindle ebook readers.
