A recent post on the Nieman Journalism Lab site detailed one fact out of an internal New York Times memo: the New York Times has approximately 10,000 paid subscribers via Amazon‘s Kindle, with another 2,000 paid subscribers getting blogs via the device.
At $13.99 per month, that puts New York Times revenues from the Kindle at over $1.6 million. Add in the blogs for another $25K, and you’re sitting pretty.
While the first iteration of the Kindle has proven successful, Amazon has also had Kindle 2 photographed. Longer and sleeker than its predecessor, it is due to be out in early 2009.
The Kindle story continues to surprise — pleasantly. Let’s hope the momentum continues.
