Jeff Bezos has finally opened up--a little--about the number of people who now own Kindles.
My guess is just over 2 million. Bezos has been suspiciously tight-lipped about how many he has sold. Apple's iPad probably pressured him to give a number. Kindle is likely to be the main victim of the iPad, assuming a lot of people actually decide to buy an iPad.
Bezos probably also waited until he passed the 2 million-unit remark before giving a number. Better than saying "over a million," which would have made me conclude that 1.01 million had been sold.
Still, the company is doing well. revenues and profits way up. So why so secretive?
