Amazon Kindle sales are off the roof

Large user base. Very good content. Early announcement to create buzz. Great hardware. Terrific price. Holiday season launch.

This is the path that made Amazon's Kindle lineup sales go off the roof. Amazon has announced that this year's sales increased four times over last year. There is no doubt that Kindle Fire has been influential in sales figures (which are not out yet)

"Even before the busy holiday shopping weekend, we'd already sold millions of the new Kindle family and Kindle Fire was the bestselling product across all of Amazon.com. Black Friday was the best ever for the Kindle family - customers purchased 4X as many Kindle devices as they did last Black Friday - and last year was a great year," said Dave Limp, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. "In addition, we're seeing a lot of customers buying multiple Kindles - one for themselves and others as gifts - we expect this trend to continue on Cyber Monday and through the holiday shopping season." 
Do we finally have a worthy competitior to iPad? Yes! Will Kindle Fire continue the charge in coming months? Yes. Do we now know how to tackle Apple's dominance in tablet market? Yes, Yes and Yes! Period!
