Kindle Fire marketing firm reports nearly 100,000 sold in first 24 hours

News, Tech


The Amazon Fire, released last week has been reported to have been pre-ordered 95,000 times. Now it’s not as high as the iPad’s 24 hour sales figures, but that’s one hell of a lot of orders for the companies first “proper” tablet.

The Amazon Kindle Fire will ship on November 15th in the US from both Amazon itself and retail partners, there’s no word on a UK release date yet.

I’ll be quite interested to see how the OS works on the Kindle Fire because it’s a modified version of Android and has been customized to Amazon’s tastes.

What are your thoughts on the Amazon Kindle Fire? Have you pre-ordered one if you’re in the US? Or are you planning on buying one if you’re anywhere else?
