Amazon On Track to Outsell the iPad?

Amazon On Track to Outsell the iPad?

Posted October 25, 2011 at 4:47pm by iClarified
CultofAndroid has obtained pre-order numbers for the Kindle Fire which suggest Amazon may be on track to outsell the iPad.

A verified source within the Seattle based online retail giant has provided Cult of Android with exclusive screenshots of Amazon's internal inventory management system Alaska (Availability Lookup and SKU Aggregator).

These leaked shoots show that orders for Amazon's Android-based tablet are racking up at an average rate of over 2,000 units per hour, or over 50,000 per day.

CultofAndroid notes that in five days since Amazon launched the Kindle Fire it had racked up over 250,000 pre-orders. At this level the company will reach 2.5 million pre-orders before the device officially launches on November 15th.

Apple sold over a million units of the original iPad in its first month of sales and sold an estimated 2.5 million units of the iPad 2 in its first month.

The thing is Apple comes out with iPad and its ideas and make it happens. Then others follow...

It's not an Apple on it, is not the same. Just saying it.

Competition is good; I hope this does turn out to be a winner (even thought I'm an apple fan-boy). It keeps things fresh and innovation at it's finest. :) Sometimes when you know you can get away with mediocre, that's all that's delivered.

Totally agree! As an iPad owner, I think competition on the tablet market is great! It will gain us, the end-users. I might even buy one for my mother ;-)

if the iPad was priced @$200 it would outsell every consumer electronic in the universe.... why people are getting into comparison between iPad and kindle fire is ridiculous... both have differences and one isn't even a fully fledged tablet!

Plus the pre-order period was long. What does "first month of sales" really mean if you can rack up weeks of pre-orders before the countdown even starts?

If the ipad was 200$ it would outsell even ipad😃

And? The fire is only $200 right? Of course it's gunna sell like crazy.

Relax... Its impressive that in this saturated market, they are able to move that many units. I myself have never thought about buying an iPad, however at a $200 price point, it is almost an impulse buy, just to have laying around the house...
