Nearly 100,000 Kindle Fires sold in 24 hours, says marketing firm
Amazon has taken just under 100,000 orders for the new Kindle Fire tablets on its first day of sales, according to data released by a digital marketing firm, eDataSource
It is reported to have taken 95,000 pre-orders for the first Amazon tablet, which is just under a third of first generation iPads sold in 24 hours.
The Amazon Kindle Fire will be shipping on November 15 2011 from Amazon and its retail partners, and was launched for $199.
There is no information yet on whether and when the Kindle Fire will be available in the UK, although we don't see why it shouldn't.
It will run a modified version of the Android OS and be integrated with Amazon's book store.
