Amazon Kindle Fire Pre-Sales to Surpass Apple iPad?


Amazon recently launched the Kindle Fire which is their first ever Android tablet and everyone is talking about it now a days. The price of the tablet is only $199 and it’s a 7-Inch tablet with a dual-core processor, and I was really surprised when I heard that Amazon launched a dual-core tablet under $200. The Kindle Fire could be dubbed as the re-evolution of the Android tablet era, as CultofAndroid leaked an internal shot of a webpage which is telling us that Amazon received more than 250,000 pre-orders for the Kindle Fire so far. It seems that Amazon received around 50,000 pre-orders (around 2,000 every hour) and I am sure that number continues to rise. Word on the street is that Kindle Fire pre-sales will surpass Apple iPads, as Apple sold more than 300,000 iPads on the first day of its launch (includes pre-orders, sales to partners and retailers). If the pre-orders for the Kindle Fire keep on increasing at the same rate, then it’s expected that the pre-orders will surpass 1 million! 

Kindle Fire is now the biggest threat to all other tablet makers and with the rumored 10-inch version, things are looking bad for the competition and great for consumers! You can attribute most of the high number of pre-orders to Amazon’s affordable price point and then match that with people’s trust of Amazon, their array of content, and you soon have yourself a winner. So, have any of you pre-ordered the Kindle Fire? Don’t forget to tell us what you like about Amazon and the Kindle Fire in the comment box below.

    When the average user learns that the tablet is only an all-use tablet on WiFi, there might be quite a few returns, as there were with netbooks in general.

    I can see a lot of people who don’t mind making a modification buying the tablet.  How Amazon.com will control that, I’m not sure, but they’re using it to sell publications, not to just be a cheap tablet for the general population.
