Barnes & Noble also reported that Nook devices were its best-selling product, but like Amazon which made the same claim for its latest Kindle, the company does not divulge actual sales figures. Analysts estimate that Barnes & Noble has sold 2 million Nooks since its launch 2009 while the Kindle, launched in 2007, has sold around 6 million.
