One thing is for sure – the Kindle Fire is going to be far more of a success than the now defunct HP TouchPad ever would, not even a week into its announcement and we already have word that pre-orders for Amazon’s upcoming tablet has already crossed the 95,000 mark on the first day alone, at least that is what analyst firm Edatasource claims. This basically out-pre-ordered (if there is such a word) the other three Kindle devices that Amazon announced at the same time, now how’s that for enthusiasm from users without even looking at the device in action?
Of course, take that figure with a pinch of salt until something official is announced by Amazon themselves. Just for context, the Kindle Fire sports a $199 price tag, and shipments of the tablet will begin from November onwards. Were you one of the 95,000, or do you have plans to add to the final count and perhaps break a record in the process?
