yes and no… what do they expect when they make a cheap at an even cheaper type… personally i looked at the kindle and i think it is much more worth it to save a little money and get a tablet that isnt a block of plastic… the home screen laged just swiping through it which is terribly annoying… if they release a kidle 2 with exterior volume buttons at least… that wud be nice

Wait!! A $200 tablet is outselling a $500 + tablet? This is shocking.

According to the other news sources I've read, the 1 million a week includes all Kindles, not just the Kindle Fire.

$200 is clearly the price the consumer likes. However, they are not getting a bargain with it, as this device is nerfed. Hold out for a discount Android or similar tablet.

iPads are probably outsold by matchsticks, but that's irrelevant too. The Fire is not an iPad competitor. It doesn't even have the Android Market on it. Its a great price for an e-reader, but makes for a below-average tablet. It competes against the B&N Tablet (which is better than the Fire).

I love Kindles, and own 2 and an Android tablet. But, I would never replace my iPad with a Kindle. I would get one in addition to an iPad.

There's the c.hack I know and love! When you make quality comments like that it just warms my heart.

For the record that was not sarcasm.

iamcc, you argue a lot like H. Himmler -- is he is your idol or something.

Note, this was not sarcasm as well.

c.hack do some research. The Android Market is on the Kindle Fire now. It's available via download on the Amazon App Store.

I agree, kindle is not a competitor... Comparing ipad vs. Kindle sales is like comparing sales of a suv with a sedan. Sure they are both vehicles but TOTALLY different classes...

no competition.

iPad vs Asus Transformer Prime. :)

also no contest however at leaset they're in the same demographic...

idk if i would really consider the Fire a tablet... its a step in the right direction but not quite there
