Although the company has never released specific sales figures for its family of Kindle devices, Amazon said Thursday that it has been selling more than 1 million per week for each of the past three weeks.
Dave Limp, Amazon's vice president for the Kindle, said that the Kindle Fire has been Amazon's best-selling product for the past 11 weeks, with "millions of units" being sold, and at a price well-below that of the iPad, its popularity is spreading. The Kindle Fire was released in mid-November, with advance sales having started in late September.
