It has just been a few weeks since the newest Kindle tablet of Amazon was launched, and yet its pre-order sales have already been rapidly skyrocketing in the market. With its 50, 000 average pre-orders daily, there’s no wonder that the hottest Kindle Fire ranks 1 in Amazon’s PC tablet sales right at this very moment.
As a matter of fact, a report published in http://mashable.com/2011/10/10/kindle-fire-preorders/ exposed how the newest android-based tablet of Amazon shows its potential to become the bestselling tablet for this holiday season.
Hottest Kindle Fire Ranks 1 in Amazon’s PC Tablet Sales
Early evidence suggests that Amazon’s $199 touchscreen Android tablet, the Kindle Fire, will be a strong seller this holiday season.
The tablet, which goes on full sale Nov. 15, is currently the bestselling and “Most Wished For” device in the electronics category on amazon.com, followed by Amazon’s lower-priced line of ereaders.
Mashable readers are showing a similar proclivity for the device. In a recent poll, 45% of readers said they would consider
purchasing the Kindle Fire above Amazon’s other ereaders, followed by the Wi-Fi only Kindle Touch (25%).
Last week, a leaked inventory shot revealed that a quarter of a million units were pre-ordered in the first five days.
Should Amazon continue to amass pre-orders at that rate (which, admittedly, is not all that likely), more than 2.5 million Kindle Fires will have been
sold before the Nov. 15 launch date — a number that would dwarf other tablets’ launch-day sales numbers. Apple, for instance, sold 300,000 iPads, including deliveries of pre-orders, on its first day of sales in the U.S.
At half the price and without a camera, mic or 3G connectivity however, the Kindle Fire is difficult to compare with other devices in the tablet category. It’s perhaps best compared to Barnes & Nobles’s $250, Android-based Nook Color, for which sales numbers have not been released.
Apparently, the Fire is surfacing as the bestselling device in the tablet scene now. With its very affordable price and fascinating features, it is not surprising that everyone seems to be running after it. Yes, the hottest Kindle Fire ranks 1 in Amazon’s PC tablet sales, and many have already anticipated this to happen. Perhaps, the rumor is true. The Fire could truly be the iPad killer.
Furthermore, a report in http://news.punchjump.com/2011/10/15/kindle-fire-no-1-tablet-at-amazon-hp-touchpad-no-2/ presents in detail how Amazon’s Kindle Fire outsells other tablets in the market.
