4 Kindle, apps numbers ?
Are there any figures/stats regarding the number of users who - instead of buying a kindle - simply download K4PC for PC's, laptops, tablets ... or an app on phones etc..?
Be interesting to know which way the balance - K4PC to kindle - is. If the proportion's significantly one way or the other, it might well give a fascinating, and perhaps telling, insight into Amazon strategy.

The problem is that a lot of (most?) people do both.
Whispernet/sync makes it convenient to download the apps to your PC and Phone even if you do the bulk of your reading on the device. Conversely, a lot of folks who have started with the apps have also acquired readers. Others use the apps to search the store or shop.
Given that the apps are a good way to cheaply expand access to the ebooks for family members and that it's the simplest way to DeDRM, the raw activation numbers won't be telling you much about what people prefer or use: there are undoubtedly more apps registered than ereaders but when it comes to actual, active use...?
Odds are Amazon doesn't know either.

I only use K for PC to download kindle books to be converted to epub. Otherwise I have no use for it.

I also have Kindle installed on my iPod touch and my iPad, but I'm not sure if I've ever used them to read anything, except for the few months between when I bought my iPod touch and when I bought my first ereader.
