Expected? perhaps not. While investment companies and strategy officials were busy down ranking the Amazon fire tablet. Amazon seems to have pulled a Witwicky with the results of first day preorders. The company has reportedly snagged orders over 95,000 for a device that they are yet to start selling.
While playing the numbers game isn’t safe in the tablet scenario, RIM sold a total of 200,000 Playbooks, Apple on the other hand sold over 300,000 on the day of order commencement. So being able to sell 100,000 of a tablet that is priced at 199$ is not a difficult task to do.
Amazon has also announced today its plans to launch a Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet, the device will have a 7 inch multitouch display with Amazon Silk Graphics. The device will officially launch on the 15th of November. The main aspects of the device are a dual core processor, color multitouch display and the fact that its based on Android.
