Amazon's Kindle selling 1m units a week

Kindle e-book readers are apparently the hot gift this Christmas with Amazon reporting that the firm sold a million of the devices every week.

The world's largest online retailer also said that the Kindle Fire remained the top selling product on Amazon.com since it was introduced 11 weeks ago.

Amazon famously doesn't reveal sales figures but called the Kindle Fire "the most successful product we’ve ever launched." The firm's previous e-ink based readers remain "close behind" the Kindle Fire in the firm's bestseller  rankings.

IHS iSuppli forecast that Amazon would sell nearly 4 million Kindle Fires this year. Another analyst said that the Kindle Fire would capture 50 per cent of the Android tablet market
