Even before its official release the Kindle Fire tablet was declared a hit. And now, this tablet computer from Seattle based company Amazon.com is already selling 2,000 tablets per hour or more than 50,000 tablets per day on pre-order basis.
These figures have been reported by website Cult of Android (opens in new tab) which is claiming that it has “internal Amazon inventory documents”.
If the reports are to be believed then even before its official release on November 15th Amazon would have sold 2.5 million Kindle Fire tablets. This will definitely outnumber the first month sale of iPad or iPad 2 as predicted by the website.
The credit for this success goes to the fact that the latest tablet from Amazon is available just for $199. At such a low rate, it seems customers are ready to overlook the few flaws that the Kindle Fire has as compared to the iPad, for example lack of 3G broadband and front facing camera.
Kindle Fire tablet boasts of new features like full colour display, multimedia capabilities, and the clever, cloud accelerated Silk browser. At just $199 Amazon’s Kindle Fire will be the cheapest available touch screen tablet in the market.
