Their inventory problems started when the STR "underperformed" for XMAS 2011.
Note that we are now 2.75 years into the STR lifecycle and they have been on sale almost continually for over 2 years and you can still find new units manufactured in 2011 out there. They tried BOGO, giving them away with content subscriptions, massive discounts, and they still have inventory heading into the fourth year. (Only the KINDLE DX has lasted longer and at least there they can partly blame the lawsuits.)

The tablets were pricier so the problem there hurt more but in quantity it is pretty clear they miscalculated far worse with the STR.
