Amazon Names Top CE Sellers Of 2011

12/29/2011 11:38:54 AM Eastern

Seattle - The Kindle
Fire, iPod Touch and Samsung's Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch smartphone were among
Amazon.com's top-selling CE products of 2011.

The list, compiled
by the nation's fourth-largest CE retailer exclusively for TWICE, serves as a
best-seller barometer for the industry given the breadth of Amazon's CE
assortment.

Leading the PC and
tablet category was the company's proprietary Kindle Fire tablet. The $199
device became the best-selling product of all soon after its introduction 13
weeks ago, while its e-reader siblings, the Kindle Touch and basic Kindle, were
Amazon's second and third best-selling products of the holiday season, with Kindle
devices cumulatively selling at a rate of more than 1 million SKUs per week throughout
December, the company said.

Amazon's second
best-selling tablet of the year was the Hewlett-Packard Touchpad, followed by
the Asus Eee Pad Transformer.

In home
electronics, the year-end list was led by three streaming media players: Apple
TV and two 1080p Roku models.

In wireless,
Samsung's Galaxy S II Epic Touch 4G Android phone for Sprint led the pack,
followed by Motorola's Droid Razr 4G Android phone for Verizon Wireless,
although the order was reversed during the holiday selling season.

In digital
imaging, the No. 1 best-seller of the year was Canon's PowerShot Elph 300 HS 12.3-megapixel
digital camera, followed by the Flip UltraHD video camera and Canon's PowerShot
S95 10-megapixel digital camera.

Within the
portable electronics category, Apple's fourth-generation iPod Touch was No. 1,
followed by the Garmin Nuvi 1400 series and the sixth-generation iPod Nano.

In other Amazon
news, the company said its third-party marketplace sellers enjoyed record
growth over the holiday season, with the number of sellers exceeding $5,000 in
sales, increasing 44 percent year over year. For all of 2011, businesses on
Amazon sold hundreds of millions of units worth billions of dollars worldwide,
the company said.
