Amazon issues ‘Best of 2010′ lists; Kindle tops electronics, Captivate wins wireless

Amazon released its “Best of 2010″ lists on Thursday, highlighting the major retailer’s best-selling, most wished-for and most gifted products of the year. In the best-selling category, Amazon’s own Kindle topped the electronics category. This was a foregone conclusion, of course, as Amazon announced earlier this week that the Kindle is now the best-selling product of all time on Amazon.com. AT&T’s Samsung Captivate was Amazon’s best-selling device in the Wireless & Accessories category, reaffirming Android’s remarkable growth in 2010. Call of Duty: Black Ops was Amazon’s best-selling video game, Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro topped the computer category and Sherlock Holmes was the company’s most streamed movie of 2010. Hit the break for Amazon’s full press release.
