Horrible Failure Kindle Fire Selling Millions

It’s a shame that the Kindle Fire is such a maligned and buggy horror product, because nobody is buying them, right? Actually, Amazon is selling “millions of units, and [are] building millions more to meet the high demand.” Oh darn!

The release by Bezos’ Book Barn marks the first mention of Fire sales numbers, which some have speculated were kept under wraps because they sucked. Quite to the contrary, Amazon says “It’s the bestselling product across all of Amazon for 11 straight weeks…In fact, demand is accelerating — Kindle Fire sales increased week over week for each of the past three weeks.” In fact, the entire Kindle line is selling a million units every single week, with the Fire at the fore.

When we said the Kindle Fire was the iPad’s first real competitor, we meant it. Numbers like this mean the Fire isn’t going anywhere. [Amazon]
