Trending: Amazon Go automated retail store handles a crowd on opening morning — and the only line was outside

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos at the Kindle Fire HD launch last month. Amazon announced Monday that the tablet is the best-selling product across all of Amazon worldwide.

Just as Amazon appears to be pushing out some older Kindle models, the company announced today that the Kindle Fire HD is the “No. 1 best-selling product across all of Amazon worldwide” since the tablet debuted Sept. 7.

Also from the statement:

Kindle Fire has been the bestselling product across since the launch of the original Kindle Fire last fall, and this continues Kindle Fire’s run as the world’s No. 1 bestselling 7-inch tablet.

The folks over at SlashGear wonder what the definition of “best-selling” really means.

Amazon also put out an over-the-air Kindle software update Monday that includes the debut of FreeTime, a parental control mechanism that allows parents to select the content their kids see and limit screen time.

And wait, there’s more. Amazon claims that “we haven’t even shipped the best tablet we’ve ever built.” That would be the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, which ships Nov. 20 and goes for $299.
