Bezos on the Kindle
From May 27-29 the Wall Street Journal's D: All Things Digital conference has been going on in Carlsbad, California. The industry’s top players were interviewed about the impact digital technology will have on our lives now and in the future. One of those interviewed was Amazon's Chairman and CEO Jeff Bezos, regarding the Kindle.
It's an interesting interview about the product and where Amazon plans to go with it. As usual, Amazon was cagey about their numbers. Bezos wouldn't say how many Kindles have sold. He did say there were would be new, improved models, but not in the near future. Obviously the company is looking for digital book sales to continue to grow.
Bezos also talks about a new video-on-demand service which will be launching from Amazon in the next few weeks.
Here's a good rundown of what was said. To see videos of the interview, go here.
