TechCrunch Says 300,000 Kindle 2s Sold To Date; Bezos: "Sales Exceeded Expectations"

http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/04/16...-sold-to-date/
Quote:
Amazon’s Kindle 2, which first shipped in late February, is selling at roughly double the rate of the first generation device, says a source close to Amazon. Approximately 300,000 of the Kindle 2s have been shipped to date, suggesting Amazon has made over $100 million in revenue from sales of the $359 device alone this year.
Update:

Quote:
April 17 (Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc., expanding into digital downloads of music and books to boost sales, said demand for the Kindle electronic reader beat its estimates.

“Kindle sales have exceeded our most optimistic expectations,” Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos said in a letter to shareholders that was filed with regulators today.

Sony is thought to be in 2nd place in EInk Reader sales (after the Kindle), with about 400K overall see Sony Reader figures: +100K in four months?. Note that these are sales figures directly from Sony, vs unconfirmed "reports" for the Kindle.

One thing to be aware of is that many people bought "Kindles" over the Christmas season and were given Kindle 2s because supply ran out. So it has really been selling since the end of November.
