Amazon Kindle Still Going Strong

As regular readers know, I purchased an Amazon Kindle a few months ago on the recommendation of a good friend. Since then, the Kindle has been a fairly constant companion for me. When I'm not working my first career (clinical dentistry) or working at my second career (dental technology geek) I'm enjoying reading my Kindle. It's great for getting a book when I want it and being able to read anywhere I have adequate light. It's much easier to transport than a normal book and the ability to download a new book anywhere over the wireless Sprint network is a huge plus. But anyway, enough of my gushing.

It appears that I'm not the only one enamored with the Kindle. In less than a year 240,000 units have been sold which translates to around 96 million for Amazon. It is also speculated that there is $6 million worth of revenue for every $25 dollars worth of revenue per device.

Obviously, Amazon has tapped into something powerful here and it promises to only get better. The Kindle is the iPod of the reading world and it's only going to get better.
