Kindle Fire Sales Keeping Pace With iPad 2


According to an announcement by Amazon, they have been selling 1 million Kindle Fire tablets each week for the past 3 weeks.

Amazon.com today announced that Kindle devices remain the hottest products this holiday season – for the third week in a row, customers are purchasing well over 1 million Kindle devices per week, and Kindle Fire remains the #1 bestselling, most gifted, and most wished for product across the millions of items available on Amazon.com since its introduction 11 weeks ago.

Assuming they could maintain this pace for an entire quarter, Amazon would be selling 13 million Kindle Fire tablets each quarter. Currently, the Apple iPad 2 is estimated to sell 13 million or so tablets in this quarter. Maybe this will lead to a price drop from Apple for the iPad, the Kindle Fire is only winning on price point right now.
