Amazon: Kindle Fire Sold Out30 Aug, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Less than a year after its launch, Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet is sold out, the company said.
Since launching the Fire has earned a 22% share of American tablet sales and has become the No. 1 selling product on Amazon. The tablet has garnered more than 10,000 five-star reviews.
The tablet offers access to more than 22 million videos, applications, games, books and other content.
“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.”
Amazon did not share when the tablet would again be widely available.
