Seattle Two Kindle tablet models were the best-selling items on Amazon.com over the Thanksgiving weekend, the e-tailer reported.

Sales of the Kindle Fire HDX (7-inch version) and Kindle Fire HD also helped make the holiday shopping weekend “the best ever” for the company’s proprietary tablet and e-reader line, which enjoyed record orders.

“We’re excited that so many customers have chosen Kindle this holiday season,” said Kindle VP Neil Lindsay. “And it’s just getting started.”

Amazon founder/CEO Jeff Bezos acknowledged on a broadcast of CBS’s “60 Minutes” that the Kindle Fire HDX, like its sister models, is sold at break-even.

The device was launched “in typical Amazon style, without making a profit on the device,” he told correspondent Charlie Rose. “But we hope to make money when you … buy books and movies.”
