New Kindle becomes Amazon's all-time best seller

Online retailer Amazon on Monday said its latest Kindle had become the company's best-selling product ever.

Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO, said the product's 139-dollar price tag meant owners of tablet computers, such as the iPad, were also buying Kindles.

Amazon also announced that it sold around 158 items a second on the peak holiday sales day, November 29 -- dubbed "Cyber Monday."
