Does The New York Times Have 10K Subscribers On Amazon’s Kindle?

26 Nov 2008 | | No Comment

The Nieman Journalism Lab is reporting (although unconfirmed at this stage) that there are 10,000 Kindle owners subscribed to the paid electronic edition of The New York Times.

One other important note from that internal New York Times memo my colleague Zach got a hold of: The company reports it has “more than 10,000 paid subscribers” to an electronic edition of the newspaper on Amazon’s Kindle ebook reader.

Very interesting if it’s true. 10,000 isn’t a big number by itself, but if you compare it to the number of rumoured Kindle owners — around 240,000 according to TechCrunch — then it starts to look like a pretty healthy number.

A sign of things to come?
