Amazon Kindle 2 hits 300,000 units sold mark

Amazon Kindle 2 which started shipping on 23 February 2009 has so far sold and shipped approximately 300,000 units (by April 16, 2009). Kindle 2 sales helped Amazon increase their Q1 net income by 24% to 177 million.

In comparison Kindle 1 had sold approximately 400,000 total units.
It has been estimated by Citi analyst that 1 million Kindle 2 will be sold during 2009. This sure looks like a case of a sequel making more money than the original.
