Amazon Kindle is one hot gadget that many don’t seem to get their hands on quickly enough. So why is it that the most wanted gadget around is out of stock indefinitely. There are two ways to explain this. Amazon obviously underestimated the demand for Amazon Kindle. In other words, they had a bunch of Kindles ready to go, but once they opened the gates, even people who were not looking at Kindle before were tempted to buy it due to all the hype and praise around the product. This is Amazon’s explanation of course. But even iPhone did not experience such long delays which shows that Amazon may have been a little bit slow in manufacturing new Kindles.
But the real reason behind Kindle’s late arrival is due to the early issues that some Kindle owners have experienced with their wireless connections and other features. I am hearing that Amazon staff members will give a higher priority to orders that have been returned for a replacement. So in essence, even if you are looking at a 5% defect ratio for Amazon Kindle, this could set people who are in line back by a week or two at least. But thankfully, Amazon is shipping items quite faster now, so if you haven’t bought your Kindle yet, you may want to do it now.
