95K Fires and 25K Kindles sold the first day

It's not exactly iPad territory, but the new Kindles appear to be off to a solid start according to one research firm.

Not really surprising. The Fire is launching at a magic price point and with tons of hype. They're going to sell a ton of them.

Actually, from the specified weight, they've already sold several tons of them by now...

Agreed. The prices of all of the devices are great.

Still love the Nook STR, though. Love that expandable memory option. That's the one thing the Kindle is still lacking.

Just saw this regarding manufacturing/supply:

Will Amazon's Kindle Fire suffer from a supply shortage the company was infamous for during the original Kindle launch? Maybe, maybe not, but analysts have different ideas for the device's prospects.

Now that the details and specifications of the Amazon Kindle Fire have been reported to death, the question turns to one of supply: Can Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and its hardware supplier Quanta make enough Kindle Fires to satisfy consumer demand?

True. But why have all the others than?

That's you Tony, others are different. I've had my Xoom for about 6 months now and just recently posted about how I can no longer live without it. :-) I'm excited about getting the Fire to suppliment it!

Posted from my Xoom while waiting to drive my son to the airport. :-)

Well, think about it: first, there are the newcomers, kids that just entered gadget age. Then there are upgraders; their PMP died or they need extra features, or they want to get into digital comics and magazines. And there are the sharers; couples or families with a PC that need to get online simultaneously but don't necessarily need two PCs. A lot of netbooks sold as second and third PCs into a household; well, a tablet can serve most of the surfing duty and offset its weaknesses vis-a-vis webpads with better content consumption features.

There is a market for the things.
It's not 250 million a year like PCs, but 5-10 million a year plus recuring content revenue is reason enough for Amazon to check in.

Those are pre-order numbers which does not necessarily equate to final numbers especially if another company announces a device.

Well, sure, they aren't final numbers. A certain percentage of pre-orders always cancel, but it still shows a healthy interest in the new Kindle line regardless of what the final first day sales numbers turn out to be.
