    Basically it just says that Amazon being Amazon is enough to steal the throne from Barnes & Noble.

    If Amazon has been shy in revealing kindle's sales figures ,my guess is that were not that impressive!

    Kindle

    Calculator reader - with a great e-ink screen.

    After owning a standard reader < non - kindle > and a NC touchscreen tablet - the Kindle is just yesterday's news. It can recover with the new devices - no doubt. I'd rather shop Amazon than B & N for ebooks - b/c of selection - but the Kindle device has reached the end of it's life.

    Barnes & Noble had a good idea with their latest touch screen reader to keep that market alive for those who want e-ink.

    I love my kindle. And latest estimates are that it'll sell 17 million devices this year. The new nook is nice for sure, but lacks all sorts of features I want in an e-ink reader: audio, screen rotation, 3G. I've no doubt a touchscreen kindle is coming; I can wait, as it's a great device as is.

    Btw, a new survey is out that shows that folks are buying dedicated e-readers faster than tablets. http://pewinternet.org/Reports/2011/E-readers-and-tablets/Report/Demographics.aspx
