Amazon Trumpets Kindle Cyber Monday Sales

One day after pushing a huge Cyber Monday discount on the firm's Kindle Fire, is claiming that Monday was the "biggest day ever" for Kindle sales worldwide. Amazon--which did not release any numbers on sales--said that Kindle device sales more than doubled over last year's holiday shopping weekend. In typical fashion, Amazon did not give a breakdown of which Kindles were most popular with customers, how many Kindles were sold, or any financial aspects of the sales records. Amazon was selling its Kindle Fire for $129 yesterday, down from its regular $159 price.
