Nook outsells Kindle, iPad outsells both? According to a new DigiTimes report, the Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader outsold the Amazon Kindle, although both were outsold by the Apple iPad.
Mingchi Kuo, analyst at Digitimes, says manufacturers shipped more Nooks than Kindles, with the Nook accounting for 53 percent of all e-readers shipped to the U.S. for the month of March 2010.

That being said, shipped units does not always lead to sold units (speak to Palm about that), but it still appears that Nook devices are selling well and demand remains high.

Overall, global e-reader shipments for the Q1 2010 were 1.43 million units.

Although the iPad is not considered solely an e-reader, the device outsold both the Kindle and the Nook, with 750,000 units already sold in the U.S.
