95,000 Sales on Day One – yes let’s get that stat out of the way first, the my friends is the amount of Amazon kindle units sold on day one alone.
That’s about a third of the 300,000 first-generation iPads Apple sold on its first day, but still impressive given Amazon is only shipping the Kindle Fire on November 15.
The Kindle Fire has bee receiving rave reviews, as it should but few questions are lingering on our minds:
1. When will it be available on our shores?
2. How Much? (estimated RM632)
3. Where to buy?
