Amazon announced at the year-end that they sold “well over” a million Kindles a week in December and the historical record demand was led by the Kindle Fire tablet. It was always going to surprise no one but it’s satisfying nonetheless to note it officially.
For good measure, Amazon’s annual listing of best selling products of the year concluded with the Kindle Fire topping electronics in Best-selling, Best-wished for and Most-gifted. Google Search 2011 mirrors that ranking as its fastest rising consumer electronics product, triumphing over Apple’s iPhone 4S and T-Mobile’s Sidekick 4G smartphones in the Google’s annual Zeitgeist summary, emphatically positioning the Kindle Fire to continue going great guns into the new year.
The cutting edge of the Kindle Fire are well documented and not difficult to see – dual-core processor, free Cloud storage, accelerated mobile browser, subsidized $199 price-tag and all….. What have become also obvious now are the compelling implication and common sense that millions cannot be all wrong. Suffice it to say that if you’re in the market for a tablet, you can’t go wrong with the Kindle Fire yourself.
