Amazon’s Android powered Kindle Fire tablet hasn’t even gone on sale but it already looks to be the possible iPad beater.
Some leaked screenshots of Amazon’s internal inventory management system suggest the above mentioned fact. According to the screenshots Kindle Fire is being ordered at an average of about 2000 units per hour or a total of 50000 orders in a day.
5 days after the announcement of the tablet, Amazon had already received about 250,000 orders and analyst predict that if the same rate goes on Amazon might recieve about 2.5 million pre-orders uptil 15th November 2011; the day it officially goes on to sale.
And if that happens, the Amazon Kindle Fire will officially beat the iPad as well as the iPad 2 in first month sales.
The first generation iPad managed to get 300,000 sales on its day of launch and just over one million sales in the first month, whereas the iPad 2 managed to get about 2.5 million sales in the first month.
Amazon will not only beat the iPad series but also some other popular tablets in sales such as Motorola’s Xoom and RIM’s Blackberry Playbook.
While we are talking about Kindle Fire outselling other tablets, we must also not forget the fact that Fire at the moment is in its pre-ordering phase which pretty makes it incomparable to sales of iPad, Xoom etc; possibly due to the fact that pre-orders can be cancelled or rate of order might see a decline.
Meanwhile, the future of Kindle Fire seems very bright. It is on course to become the low-price full featured competitor to the likes of iPad, Galaxy Tab as well as the HTC Flyer. These tablets are good in their own place but the Fire might take away the market due to its low price. Another selling point for the Fire might be its Amazon backed marketplace which offers a large collection of apps as well as other tablet related stuff.
We will have to wait and see if the it makes it among the big-boys of the tablet world both in sales and usability, until then stay tuned to GizmoCrazed.
