Kindle Fire—The #1 Best-Selling Product on Amazon Since Launch—Now Sold Out  :o

In just 9 months, Kindle Fire captures 22% of U.S. tablet sales

10 of the top 10 best-selling items on Amazon since Kindle Fire launched are Kindle devices and content

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2012-- (NASDAQ:AMZN)—Less than one year ago, Amazon introduced Kindle Fire—combining 15 years of innovation into a single, fully-integrated, end-to-end service for customers. Kindle Fire quickly became the most successful product launch in the history of Amazon.com, earning over 10,000 5-star customer reviews, and is the #1 best-selling product across the millions of items available on Amazon since its introduction 48 weeks ago. Today, Amazon announced that Kindle Fire is sold out, and that in just nine months, Kindle Fire has captured 22% of tablet sales in the U.S.

“We’re grateful to the millions of customers who have made Kindle Fire the most successful product launch in the history of Amazon,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “This has been a big year for digital products on Amazon—all of the top 10 sellers on Amazon.com since Kindle Fire launched just less than a year ago are digital products. Kindle Fire is sold out, but we have an exciting roadmap ahead—we will continue to offer our customers the best hardware, the best prices, the best customer service, the best cross-platform interoperability, and the best content ecosystem.”

Kindle Fire offers customers a vast selection of digital content—over 22 million movies, TV shows, apps, games, books, magazines and more—in one seamless, end-to-end experience, making it easy for customers to browse, discover and purchase. Since Kindle Fire launched last September, all of the top 10 products on Amazon—across all products—are digital products.

In My Life:
I probably ought to get a Kindle since one of my duties at the library is to help people with such things. I'm going to get the crash course in how to use them on Monday but once the person I'm replacing is done at the end of the week I'll be Kindle-less. I just really haven't had that moment yet where I've thought, "Wow, I wish I had a Kindle right now!" LOL

So, have you tried Kindle?

Not yet but one is coming from the library system for me to learn with. I won't get to keep it but at least I won't have to say, "Um...I don't know" if anyone comes in with one and needs help! People can download books from the library system for free. After three weeks it quits working; that's the equivalent of returning it. We have to embrace this new technology or go out of business!

I'm thinking of getting one for my friend's birthday.
I havent tried it.... but meh, I like my paper books... besides I am infront of a screen everyday so it doesnt really draw me to get me one
