Amazon’s Kindle Fire Cost Apple US$ 1 Billion in iPad Sales this December
The Amazon tablet called Kindle Fire is eating into the profits that Apple would have made from iPad sales this holiday season in the United States. The average sales of the Apple iPad dipped from the expected 16 million to 12-13 million during the highly profitable holiday season. This is courtesy the entry level users shifting over to the Amazon Kindle Fire, especially because of all the features it holds and the basic difference in price of the Apple iPad and the Fire.
The Kindle Fire is also based on Android which has already been rooted, therefore that attracts the modders and themers.
