Amazon sells out of Kindle Fire one week before press event

Amazon has officially announced that the Android-based Kindle Fire has sold out with one week to go before their September 6 press event.  Sounds like all the proof we need that a new model or two is set to hit in the very short term.  The current Kindle Fire has done quite well for Amazon, having now captured  22% of the U.S. tablet market.  Not too shabby for a nine-month run, eh?

“We’re grateful to the millions of customers who have made Kindle Fire the most successful product launch in the history of Amazon,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “This has been a big year for digital products on Amazon—all of the top 10 sellers on Amazon.com since Kindle Fire launched just less than a year ago are digital products. Kindle Fire is sold out, but we have an exciting roadmap ahead—we will continue to offer our customers the best hardware, the best prices, the best customer service, the best cross-platform interoperability, and the best content ecosystem.”
