Amazon Claims Selling 1 Million Kindle Products Each Week

Amazon recently claims that it has sold over 1 million Kindle products consecutively for the third week. Amazon’s Kindle products seem to do well in sales so far, getting loads of appreciation from the consumers.

Kindle range of products is undoubtedly one of the successful product ranges of Kindle, particularly its Kindle Fire, which is the Amazon’s bestselling product ever. Despite the fact that company hasn’t disclosed any particular figures on sales, but Kindle File with a price tag of $199 tells you the whole story. In addition to Kindle Fire, Kindle Touch 3G ($149), the Kindle ($79) and Kindle Touch ($99) are other popular products.

While the Kindle Fire has been selling at exceptional levels, the tablet has met with a strong criticism regarding its average performance. To improve the performance of the tablet, company is preparing to release a comprehensive software update in near future.

According to Amazon Public Relations Team, “As with all of our products, we continue to make them better for customers with regular software updates — in fact, in less than two weeks, we’re rolling out an over-the-air update to Kindle Fire that will improve performance, touch navigation and give customers the option to choose what items display on the carousel.”

The company has still kept the information regarding the next-generation model secret, however, some tech experts presume it to launch in the spring next year.

Since the launch of Kindle Fire, it has been met with strong criticism and inconsiderate reviews. For instance, a study from the Nielsen Norman Group revealed that a group of mobile phone users described the tablet’s user experience less-than-stellar, with an error-prone browser and a relatively smaller touchscreen for a tablet.

Jakob Nielsen, the founder of Nielsen Normal Group said, “The most striking observation from testing the Fire is that everything is much too small on the screen, leading to frequent tap errors and accidental activation.”

Some users also report it as heavier among other available tablets and also slower to load pages.

Amazon time and again refers Fire as a direct competitor of the renowned iPad. Is it really a true competitor of iPad? Does it have the said potential to compete with Apple’s ipad? Let us know about your experience of the device in the comment section.
