Kindle 3 is Amazon's best-selling product ever

Kindle beats Harry Potter to the finish line

Avada Kedavra Harry Potter. It's the Kindle's time to reign.

T3 told you that the Amazon Kindle was the top selling item over the Christmas buying period. The latest is that the Amazon Kindle 3 is now the company's best-selling product of all time.

The Kindle 3 is priced at £109 and has overtaken the seventh Harry Potter book - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - as the top seller on Amazon.

Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO said, "We're seeing that many of the people who are buying Kindles also own an LCD tablet. Customers report using their LCD tablets for games, movies, and web browsing and their Kindles for reading sessions."

He also added that the price of the Kindle is a key factor: "It's low enough that people don't have to choose."

On Christmas Day, people purchased more Kindle books than on any other day in history, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the most purchased Kindle book on that day.

Amazon also added that 13.7 million items were ordered worldwide on its peak day, November 29, which translates into 158 items per second.
