Kindle Fire ODM orders for Q1 to fall in half when compared with Q4, down to 3 million
The Amazon Kindle Fire 7" tablet is seeing its ODM orders slashed in Q1 from about six million in the holiday quarter, to three million, which means about a million a month. The same fate is said to happen with the Nook Tablet, the orders for which are winding down to 800 000 - 1 million a month as well.

While the Kindle Fire had its fair share of teething problems, the 50% order reduction is not due to lack of acceptance, as it sold pretty well during the holiday rush hour, but rather to the usual post-season adjustment.

Suppliers have allegedly been expecting the slump in Kindle Fire orders, and touch panel maker Wintek is expected to post a robust revenue of $300-$333 million a month in Q1, aided by touch panel orders from Apple, which are still going strong.

Nook Tablets is great. Dual core processor with 1GB of ram and having an awesome screen makes it a winner.

Unfortunately, Nook also only has 1GB available for user apps and storage and almost no app store.

I scored with my Kindle Fire. Got it on Craigslist brand new for 100.00. IMHO,it's an awsome little tablet for the size and specs. Netflix and Hulu work great on it. I read a lot too,so it's perfect. No problems so far,only pure satisfaction.
