The Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX 7″ were the best-selling items on Amazon.com this holiday shopping weekend, according to Amazon‘s latest announcement. The announcement was made on Wednesday, December 4, 2013 right after the National Retail Federation‘s retail industry’s main trade group reported that the retail spending over Thanksgiving weekend dropped for the first time since 2009 despite longer opening hours and a record number of sales.
The world’s biggest online retailer said that the past holiday shopping weekend was the “best ever for Kindle tablets” for having a record breaking number of sold Kindle devices, with the Kindle Fire HD and the new Kindle Fire HDX 7″ being the best-selling items.
“We’re excited that so many customers have chosen Kindle this holiday season—and it’s just getting started!” said Neil Lindsay, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “Our new Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers are the best we’ve ever built, and we can’t wait for customers to unwrap their gifts this holiday.”
A $50 off savings on Kindle Fire tablets were offered to online shoppers during the Cyber Monday sale. The price offer for 7″ Kindle Fire HD was down to $119 and the 7″ Kindle Fire HDX was down to $179, its lowest price ever.
The Kindle Fire HD is the second generation of Amazon’s Kindle Fire line of color touchscreen tablet computers while Kindle Fire HDX is the third generation of Amazon’s Kindle Fire line of tablet computers.
