Apparently Apple hasn’t yet managed to “stand on their shoulders and go a bit further” than Amazon on e-books, as Steve Jobs smugly proclaimed at the iPad launch event – and it would be fascinating to see the percentage of Kindle books sold on iOS devices today

The company also painted a picture of accelerating growth in its sales of e-books, which can be read on the Kindle and on a host of other devices, including Apple's iPad and iPhone. Amazon said that Kindle e-book sales had overtaken Amazon's hardback book sales.

Over the last month, the Seattle-based Internet retailer sold 180 Kindle e-books for every 100 hardcover books it sold.
