Despite Critics, Amazon Fire Sales Keep Climbing

Amazon.com has been under fire for security problems associated with its Kindle Fire tablet. The New York Times recently pointed to a host of user complaints. Amazon has indicated that an over-the-air update is coming.

But none of this has apparently slowed down sales of the tablet, at least not so far.

Amazon
issued a press release today indicating that customers are snapping up
Fire at a rate of more than 1 million a week, for the third straight
week.

Says Amazon Vice President Dave Limp in the release: “Kindle
Fire is the most successful product we’ve ever launched – it’s the
bestselling product across all of Amazon for 11 straight weeks, we’ve
already sold millions of units, and we’re building millions more to meet
the high demand. In fact, demand is accelerating – Kindle Fire sales
increased week over week for each of the past three weeks.”
