The Amazon Kindle Fire: Smoking Hot Deal or Are You Going to Wait?

October 7, 2011 | Posted By: Laura Smith | Categorized in: Shopping, Technology

The Kindle Fire pre-orders are hot and holiday rumors are already flying. Last year, the Kindle 3G Black Friday deal sold out in seconds. There was a lot of hype around the product and many consumers were not happy that the Kindle sold out before they could even put it in their cyber cart. Let’s take a look at the new Kindle, heating up the tablet and e-reader world.

The Amazon Kindle Fire has raised the bar for tablets and e-readers with such a low price of $199. Besides the low price, what else are people so excited about?
  • It’s a tablet meets ultimate e-reader for the perfect relationship with movies, TV shows, music, books, magazines, apps, games, web browsing and more.
  • Pay $79 a year for Amazon Prime for over 2 million titles and 11,000 videos.
  • From Amazon’s Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, “Kindle Fire has a radical new web browser called Amazon Silk. When you use Silk – without thinking about it or doing anything explicit – you’re calling on the raw computational horsepower of Amazon EC2 to accelerate your web browsing.”
  • Check out this informative table with top e-readers and compare specs.

How many Fire sales a day keeps the Apple away?

Kindle Fire pre-orders exceeded 95,000 on the first day it was available, according to Edatasource, and continues to sell at a rate of 2,000 per hour or 50,000 a day! If this excitement continues, the Kindle Fire will exceed the first month’s sales of the iPad 1 and iPad 2.

Rumors have started as this popular tablet enters the market.
The competition is fierce, and it’s just getting started.

Pssst…Rumors began about the release of the 10-inch Kindle Fire to arrive before 2011. Maybe we’ll see some killer Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals? In the mean time, the hype continues even before the 7-inch Kindle Fire hits shelves.

Pssst...Reuters reports that the Kindle Fire may force Android tablet manufacturers to reduce prices.

Pssst...Sony may come out with a competitively priced tablet soon. Sony executives have claimed by 2012, they will become the world’s number two tablet maker, behind Apple.

What are you going to do? Pre-order now for the November 15, U.S. only, release or wait out the holiday sales, rumor mill and see how the tablet market reacts?

The Kindle Fire is a wonderful tablet it will do almost everything a Apple ipad can do, I am very happy with my purchase, the screen is small but you get used to it. The apps are very good at times. The web freezes at times when overloading information maybe my connection is slow there is a multitude of information news papers, magazines, music , games ,and course the internet. For the purchase price of $199.00 it is worth every penny and then some.
