Kindle 3 Beats Harry Potter To Become the Best Selling Product in Amazon History

Amazon doesn't like to talk numbers when it comes to Kindles—a reported 8 million were sold in 2010 alone—but they're happy to confirm this factoid: the new Kindle is the best selling product in the site's history.

The new bestseller status means that Kindle 3 has vanquished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) as Amazon's top selling product. It is indeed a nice ebook reader! And while they have you here, Amazon would also like to point out that people bought 13.5 million things on November 29, amount to a record breaking 158 items per second. When's this e-commerce fad gonna end!? [BusinessWire]
