    Retailing giant Amazon announced on Thursday that it was selling more than 1 million Kindle devices per week over the last three weeks. Those numbers include the company’s hot new Android-derived tablet the Kindle Fire, as well as the Kindle touch, and the Kindle 4 (which is technically named simply the Kindle). Amazon did not break out individual numbers for each model.

    The Kindle Fire was announced in September as a US$199 tablet based on a forked version of Android. The company built a custom interface with hooks into its digital music, movies and TV shows, and the title digital content, Kindle ebooks.

    The 7” device offers limited features compared to Apple’s iPad 2, but it’s been a huge hit for Amazon and has proven to be the only other tablet besides the iPad 2 that anyone wants. For more information, check out TMO’s spec comparison between the Kindle Fire and the iPad 2.

    While Amazon didn’t break out individual numbers for each Kindle device, the company did say that the, “Kindle Fire remains the #1 bestselling, most gifted, and most wished for product across the millions of items available on Amazon.com since its introduction 11 weeks ago.”

    The company also said that demand for the product has accelerated week over week for each of the last three weeks, and that the company has sold “millions of units.”

    Wow those are impressive numbers. Is there anyplace you can check what are the most purchased products for these Kindle devices are? I will probably just try to do some research on Amazon to start. Does mean a lot of people are buying E-books? Or more videos and music? I wonder what the best features of the fire are. I wonder how long these sales numbers will last into the new year. These devices do sound amazing!

    The best tablet out there is the EE Pad Transformer, but at least the best selling tablet is an Android one.

    Kindles hardware selling prices is under cost, selling 1 million unit per week which mean another loss couple millions per week. Amazon is hoping to cover loss revenue through selling ebook.

    It seems Amazon is selling more ebooks than hardcover and paperback books combined! Guess the sales will continue to go up in 2012 as well...
