Half a million Kindles by year-end 2008?

The most plausible and empirical calculation I’ve seen yet suggests 210,000 Kindles in circulation!

Missing data point: how many modules did the manufacturer ship before the Kindle’s 11/19/07 launch?

Assuming 40,000 a month the rest of the year, which probably understates the 4th- quarter flow by quite a bit, we’d arrive at 530,000 or so by year’s end. I suspect by then the figure will be closer to a million.

The latest developments in the e-Ink technology utilized by the Kindle suggest the possibility that the Kindle 2.0 could feature an even more elegant, fully “writable” and erasable touchscreen to allow Kindle users to move beyond the device’s keyboard for input to annotations, notes, email and other functions. Details in a a report by Martyn Williams from the Display 2008 exhibition on the InfoWorld website.
