Kindle Bits: Price Drop and Rough Title Sales Figures

Speaking at the in-progress D6 Conference, Jeff Bezos offers a glimpse into the Kindle’s sales impact. From D6 Highlights:

On a title-by-title basis, [Bezos] says, Kindle unit sales now account for more than 6% of Amazon book sales for the 120,000 125,000 titles that are available on Kindle.

Note: That’s not six percent of Amazon’s total book sales. It’s six percent of the pool of 120,000 125,000 multi-format Kindle/print titles.

Amazon has also dropped the Kindle’s price by $40 to $359.
