Amazon customers snapped up more than 4 million Kindle devices in December, making it the retailer's best holiday ever.

Amazon says it sold more than a million Kindles per week. The company also says the Kindle Fire has been the best-selling, most-gifted, and most wished for product on its website since its release in November.

The news of Amazon's holiday success comes on the heels of new rumors that Apple could be releasing two new versions of the iPad in late January.
