For now, Amazon's doing just fine, thank you

The arrival of Apple's iPad may eventually spell doom for the Kindle, but right now, Amazon isn't complaining. Publisher's Weekly reports that Amazon had a banner year in 2009 - you know, as the rest of the economy plummeted into some lower circle of hell. Total revenue  was up 28% and net income increased 40%, according to PW.

Also interesting: Amazon reports that it now sells six Kindle books for every 10 physical books on the 410,000 e-books it has in stock (excluding free e-books).
