The Kindle E-reader makes into Amazon’s history as the “most gifted item on Amazon ever. I’ve actually tried the device as of yesterday and have to say, very impressed with Kindle. The features worth outlining are the text-to-speech feature, book samples before you buy the books, and even a basic web browser that let’s you browse the web virtually free using its 3G connection (which is certainly better than until Nook can be hacked fully).
“We are grateful to our customers for making Kindle the most gifted item ever in our history,” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com. “On behalf of Amazon.com employees around the world, we wish everyone happy holidays and happy reading!”
On Amazon’s peak day, Dec. 14, 2009, customers ordered over 9.5 million items worldwide, which is a record-breaking 110 items per second.
