It seems the festivity bug has already smitten Amazon and its Kindle e-readers. In fact, the company is already reporting having sold far more Kindle devices than they did in the entire year of 2009, and its only just October! You be sure that with the upcoming holiday season sales should reach a new crescendo.
So the new Kindle Graphite 3G and Kindle Graphite WIFI is all set to rewrite all previous e-reader sales records during the fast approaching holiday season. The Kindle right now is the hottest selling thing on both Amazon US and Amazon UK.
Also, the timing of Amazon ‘s announcement is interesting as we are just hours away from the grand Barnes & Noble event that is expected to yield a whole new Nook. It might not be mere coincidence as Amazon will surely like to have its market share intact when its a new Nook Color that is being talked about more feverishly than Kindles.
