Apple has been dominating the tablet market with the iPad. Many have tried and failed to put up a formidable challenge against that tablet. Amazon may be about to change that with the Kindle Fire. Yesterday, we reported that Amazon was boosting Kindle Fire productions to fulfill all the Kindle Fire orders it has been getting. Surveys are now suggesting that the Kindle Fire may outsell the iPad this holiday season.
It is no secret that the iPad is one of the hottest holiday gadgets around. But it does cost a lot of money. Kindle Fire is an impressive tablet that costs only a fraction of what Apple is asking for the iPad. In a survey of more than 1,000 consumers commissioned by Retrevo, 44% suggested they would buy a Kindle Fire. Only 12% suggested they would buy an iPad 2 instead of a Kindle Fire.
Even those who own a tablet seem to be intrigued with the idea of getting a Kindle Fire. Let’s face it. The Kindle Fire won’t outperform the iPad in most departments. But it is a cheap media tablet for those who do not need all the bells and whistles on iPad. Considering that the state of the economy is not that great, the Kindle Fire will remain a hot item for the foreseeable future.[image credit: retrevo]
