Kindle Fire sales figures leaked to fire up Kindle Fire sales

The Kindle Fire is a success.

250,000 have been sold in the first 5 days.

It’s not an inferno of success – in which case Amazon would release figures in a blaze of publicity (1 million Kindle Fires take flight and light up the Tablet skies in first week).

It’s not been attacked by a school of fire extinguishers and dampened – in which case Amazon would enkindle its ‘Secrecy Defence’ and claim it doesn’t release sales figures (because rivals could take those Kindle Fire sales figures and hire the three witches from Macbeth to fire up their cauldron and conjure up a Potion of Competitive Fire and Ice).

Kindle Fire is a smoldering success – it forces Amazon to leak sales figures and hope that news of 250K sales in 5 days (2,000 an hour supposedly) will put a match to the Kindle Fire holiday bonfire.

Here’s the Kindle Fire Sales figure article that lit up the pipes and tubes of the Internet today – the news is spreading like wild fire.

Six weeks before it officially goes on sale, Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire is shaping up to be the biggest tablet launch ever…

A verified source within the Seattle-based online retail giant … leaked shoots show … racking up at an average rate of over 2,000 units per hour, or over 50,000 per day.

Please Note: We bear no responsibility for the sensational and fiery claim that Kindle Fire will burn brighter than iPad – that is ascribed entirely to Mr. Brownlee’s burning zeal for Android devices.

Also Note: The deft touch of leaking Kindle Touch sales – Makes the leak seem more realistic.

Kindle Fire isn’t quite on Fire – It’s smoldering

250,000 Kindle Fire sales in 5 days. Not exactly what Amazon would have hoped for, from its Fire Sale (at $199 it’s hard to argue it’s anything else).

That has to be vexing. Annoying, Frustrating. Amazon is happy and sad. Happy that sales aren’t a damp squib – that the matches are working. Sad that instead of a roaring blaze it has a comfy little fire.

Amazon has to find something that will set the world on fire. Something that will cause the smoldering to burst into flames that engulf the entire Tablet Market.

So it starts off with a tiny little flicker of well-disguised PR which it hopes will fan the flames – a ‘random’ leak to a zealous Android site. A leak that reassures people that Fire really is on fire. That the flames are reaching out and engulfing more and more of the Tablet Forest every day.

Amazon gently throws some kerosene on the flames -

It is safe to buy some Fire. 50,000 sparks every day can’t be wrong.

Let our Alaska system reassure you that Kindle Fire is indeed devouring the Tablet Forest and that a sea of flames is spreading its incandescence and warmth everywhere.

Be part of the conflagration. Sit by the glow of this campfire. Let the warmth of the hearth reassure you.

Kindle Fire is spreading. Faster than the iPad (supposedly). Fast enough to light a fire under other Android Tablet makers. Fast enough to singe the edges of Apple’s Tablet market share.

If Amazon can keep the fire going, it will have 2.5 million resplendent Kindle Fires across the country by November 15th. Embers that might spark tiny fires of desire in the minds of millions of people. By end 2011 there might be 5 million or more Fires lighting up the country. May we live in exciting and fiery times.

Kindle Fire FAQ

The Kindle Fire is threatening to set the world on fire. Thought a Kindle Fire FAQ would help.

What is the Kindle Fire?

Kindle Fire is a Kindle Tablet from Amazon. It is a 7″ Tablet that is optimized for watching movies, surfing the web, checking and sending email, playing games, listening to music, and reading.

Think of it as ‘an iPad for the rest of us’ or ‘an iPad near-equivalent for $199′.

Should I get a Kindle Fire?

Perhaps.

It depends on your needs. It depends on whether you prefer to see actual reviews before buying.

Kindle Fire seems quite a good device (very good for what it’s meant to do) and $199 is a tempting price. That being said, it’s best to gather as much information as possible. Which this Kindle Fire FAQ will help you with.

Should I get a Kindle or a Kindle Fire?

If you would like a device primarily for reading – get a Kindle Touch for $99.

If you want a device that does lots of things - please read the next few questions.

Should I get a Kindle Fire or a Nook Color?

You should wait for B&N to announce a Nook Color 2. It should be sometime soon i.e. within the next 2-3 weeks.

If you like Amazon and the Kindle Fire seems compelling then you can go with it. However, even if you pre-order, my recommendation would be to keep an eye out for Kindle Fire vs Nook Color 2 comparisons once Nook Color 2 is announced.

Should I get an iPad 2 or a Kindle Fire?

Should you get a second generation Apple Tablet that is $499 and also doubles up to show people how well-off and original and unique you are?

Vs

Should you get a first generation Amazon Tablet that is $199 and also doubles up as an easy way for Amazon to let you buy all sorts of content from Amazon?

They are, for all practical purposes, completely different devices. Kindle Tablet isn’t going to give you the Status/Money Signalling Benefits that an iPad 2 will. Kindle Tablet is also a first generation device and has a markedly smaller range of Apps available.

If you can afford both – then an iPad 2 is probably a better choice. If the price of the iPad is making you think twice – then the Kindle Fire is probably a better choice.

Please note that both are closed and neither is going to satisfy you very much if you like to tinker around with your device.

Tell me more about the Kindle Fire – What are its selling points?

Kindle Fire is very impressive for a $199 Tablet -

  1.  7″ IPS color screen. This is a very good screen with 1024 by 600 pixel resolution and 169 ppi pixel density. It also has two finger multi-touch and an anti-reflective treatment.
  2. Lots and lots of content – lots of magazines, over 100K movies and TV shows, lots of Android Apps, over 1,000 children’s illustrated books, around 1 million books from the Kindle Store.
  3. Quite Light at 14.6 ounces (413 grams). Pretty compact - 7.5″ x 4.7″ x 0.45″ (190 mm x 120 mm x 11.4 mm). Makes it easy to hold in one hand (though probably not for long) and easy to carry around.
  4. Very good value for money. Some analysts are even claiming that Amazon is losing $50 per Kindle Fire sold.
  5. A pretty powerful dual-core processor from Texas Instruments.
  6. The user interface, based on everything we have seen so far, is fast and simple and easy to use.
  7. Gorilla Glass display means more durability and less scrapes and scratches.
  8. Built-in Browser that will let you access Facebook, Twitter, and other sites. There is support for Flash too.
  9. Built-in Email App.
  10. WhisperSync (automatic syncing across devices) now extends from Kindle Fire to Kindles and TVs. The point at which you stopped reading a book or stopped watching a movie is synced across devices.
  11. Kindle Fire is better for Children’s Books and Textbooks than the Kindle. Mostly due to touch and color.
  12. Free Cloud Storage for Amazon content. Doesn’t really make up for the limited 8 GB space and lack of SD card.
  13. There’s a USB port. You can transfer files from your PC or Mac to the Kindle Fire. You can also charge is via USB.
  14. Support for Flash.
  15. You could stretch it and say a free month of Amazon Prime is a benefit.

Those are most of the main Kindle Fire selling points.

What drawbacks does the Kindle Fire have?

Let’s see -

  1. It’s not cutting-edge in terms of the hardware. For example: The multi-touch is only two finger multi-touch.
  2. There’s no 3G. That means you have to find a WiFi network to get web access.
  3. The battery life at 8 hours (7 hours of video playback) is a bit shorter than ideal.
  4. 8 GB memory will fill up very quickly. There is no SD Card slot which is a major pain. The free Cloud storage is nice but it’s only for content bought from Amazon.
  5. At 14.6 ounces the weight is not optimal. Note: It’s lighter than Nook Color but it’s still a bit heavier than ideal.
  6. There’s no camera so that if you wanted to miss the birth of your grandchild and watch it over your Tablet instead – you couldn’t.
  7. The design is a bit bland.
  8. It will not play DRM protected media bought from elsewhere. So ePub books from Sony, B&N, and Kobo won’t work and neither will music files that are DRM protected.
  9. No plug-ins in the browser.
  10. Netflix doesn’t have an app for it though Amazon has said Netflix is enthusiastic about adding an App.
  11. It’s a very customized version of Android (Gingerbread-based Honeycomb variant of 2.3 – which is even more confusing than Split Browser Amazon Silk). That means updates only when Amazon does updates.
  12. It does not have an eInk screen and will not be readable in sunlight. If the anti-glare layer is anything like the Nook Color’s anti-glare layer it won’t make much difference.
  13. It seems that there is no Text to Speech capability which is a definite negative.
  14. The USB port is the type that is used to connect with your PC and can’t be used with general USB devices. It will let you charge your Kindle Fire and will let you move files from PC to Fire and back. However, you can’t plug-in something like a camera or a USB keyboard.

Overall, it’s clear that Kindle Fire is not a $500 Android Tablet or a $500 iPad. It is, however, very impressive for $199.

What’s all this Split Browser/Amazon Silk nonsense Amazon keeps talking about?

Amazon has figured out a way to make browsing websites faster when using the browser on the Kindle Fire.

In a nutshell:

Instead of loading the parts of a website one by one (i.e. first the picture from one place, then text from another, and so forth) – Kindle Fire’s browser lets Amazon’s Cloud load the entire website to the Cloud and then gets the entire website in one go from the Cloud.

It also makes intelligent guesses of what page you might want next and preloads those pages. This makes surfing faster.

It’s like doing all your shopping at one supermarket (with a personal helper) in 30 minutes instead of visiting 10 different 7/11s and taking 2 hours to walk around and 1 hour for the actual shopping.

Is this Amazon Silk stuff a big deal?

We don’t really know. It promises to be significant (though probably not life-changing). We’ll know once the Kindle Fire actually arrives.

Your WiFi network speed is probably more important.

You know what is puzzling though – Why did Amazon go to all this trouble to talk up this feature when it could just call it ‘Faster Browsing’? Why is Amazon going to all this trouble to explain the technology underlying it when no one really cares?

Is this Amazon Silk thing a privacy nightmare?

Have no idea.

Depends on what Amazon does with the data and how it anonymizes data. It’s sort of impossible to anonymize perfectly so that’s another thing to keep in mind. Every single site you visit will be through Amazon’s Cloud and there might be sites you don’t want anyone to know you visit (for example - health stuff).

Kindle Fire FAQ – Common and Uncommon Questions

Can my Kindle Books be transferred over?

Yes. It’s a Tablet and it has a Kindle App (probably a version of Kindle for Android). You just connect to your account and download whatever books you like.

Note: You cannot transfer the actual files from your Kindle to Kindle Tablet – Kindle Books have to be downloaded separately for each separate device or app.

Does it have Apps? How Many? Does it have App X?

Yes, Kindle Tablet will have access to Amazon’s App store for Android.

There are ‘thousands of apps’ according to Amazon. Every day one paid app is made free.

At the Amazon Android App Store page you can see what apps are available and can also search to see if the app you want will be available.

Is Kindle Fire screen as easy on the eyes as eInk? Can it be read in sunlight?

No. No. It’s a LCD screen – very similar to a computer. The higher pixel density makes it prettier and IPS gives you a wider angle of view. However, it is not easy on the eyes like eInk. It also is hard/impossible to read in sunlight.

Can i use Kindle Fire as a phone? Does it have Skype?

Kindle Fire has no microphone so you can’t use it for Skype or as a Phone.

Does the Kindle Fire browser support Flash?

Yes.

Will Kindle Fire support ePub? Will it support Nook Books or Nook Reading App or Google Ebooks App?

No. No.

Is there an SD Card slot on the Kindle Fire? How do I transfer files over?

No, no SD Card. You can transfer files via USB.

Will Kindle Fire support PDF and Word?

Yes. You can read documents in PDF and Word. For editing there are apps like QuickOffice and Documents To Go in the Amazon Android App Store. The ones with better functionality are usually paid apps.

What formats does Kindle Fire support?

Documents and Books: Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively, DOC, DOCX.

Audio: Audible (Audible Enhanced (AA, AAX)), non-DRM AAC, MP3, MIDI, OGG, WAV.

Movie: MP4, VP8.

Picture: JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP.

With Apps you might be able to extend to more formats.

Will Kindle Fire support Excel and Powerpoint?

Amazon’s Android App Store has apps like Quick Office that allow opening and editing Excel and Powerpoint.

Is the Kindle Fire screen back-lit?

Yes.

Do I get a discount if I own a Kindle already?

Unfortunately not.

Will Kindle Fire have Collections/Folders for Books?

Probably not. It will use Kindle for Android and that doesn’t support Collections yet.

It might get added by the time Kindle Fire ships.

Does Kindle Fire come with Bluetooth?

To the best of my knowledge – No. Amazon certainly doesn’t mention it anywhere.

Is there a contract for the Kindle Fire?

No.

If you want Amazon Prime (free 2-day shipping on orders from Amazon, free streaming movies) then you have to pay $79 a year.

Is there a docking station for the Kindle Fire? Is there a physical keyboard add-on for the Kindle Fire?

Not yet.

Will there be an on-screen keyboard?

Yes.

Does the Kindle Fire have GPS?

No.

I have Questions about Amazon Silk (the browser on the Kindle Fire) - Where can I find answers?

At Amazon’s Amazon Silk Help Page.

Can we buy a Kindle Fire if we’re outside the US?

Not at the moment.

Does Kindle Fire have HDMI capability?

No. It does not have HDMI out.

Can we plug in USB devices like USB Keyboards into Kindle Fire?

No. The micro-USB B type connector can only be used for moving files from your PC or Mac and for charging from your PC or Mac.

This means you can’t plug in a flash drive (USB external drive) or something similar.

Note: There is one thread claiming that USB host support is present on Kindle Fire. However, I seriously doubt it. Will update this section if this feature is confirmed/denied officially.

Will Kindle Fire be available at brick and mortar stores?

No idea. Given that Amazon sells Kindles at Staples, Best Buy, and lots of other stores it’s quite possible. On the other hand, if Kindle Tablet sells out then Amazon won’t be able to sell it through Brick and Mortar stores.

Does Kindle Fire have anti-virus protection?

No. If you only buy apps from the Amazon App Store for Android then you should be fine.

If you start side-loading apps or hacking the Kindle Fire then you might introduce an app that has a hidden virus. You might also introduce something problematic if you’re downloading files from the Internet and transferring them over.

You can use an app called Lookout to scan apps. However, that’s outside my area of expertise.

Notes from the Kindle Fire Conference

Setting things up for Kindle Fire

Now Jeff Bezos is talking about Amazon’s streaming services and seems to be setting up the Kindle Tablet. He’s talking about Prime Instant Video – which you get free with Prime.

Talking about Amazon Web Services – seems there will be some link between Kindle Fire and the Amazon Cloud. With the $79 Kindle there’s the promise of free Cloud storage. With the $199 Kindle Tablet there might be more.

Now talking about how to bring together Prime, AWS, Video, MP3, App Store. Mentions the Kindle Fire. So, the awkward name is reality.

  1. 7″ IPS display. Full-color.
  2. Dual Core Processor.
  3. 14.6 ounces in weight. Easy to Hold.
  4. Everything is backed up to the Cloud. That’s a bit much – guess with WiFi the costs for Amazon are much lower.
  5. WhisperSync works with movies and TV Shows.
  6. Heavily-customized interface – nothing like Android. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Of course, if you love openness then you won’t like it. The interface looks quite good.
  7. Gorilla Glass and 169 dpi for the screen.
  8. Supports Multi-tasking. In particular, Mr. Bezos demonstrates background music.
  9. This is a big one. Using the power of EC2 (Amazon Web Services related) to accelerate web browsing. Amazon Silk. It renders content in the cloud – dynamic split browsing which lets you do things locally or in the cloud. The product naming team at Amazon is on a roll – Kindle Fire, Amazon Silk, Dynamic Split Browsing.
  10. All in all this feature might end up being far more useful than any of the others. It’ll make browsing on Kindle Fire very smooth and quite a bit faster.
  11. Setting up the price – $199 Kindle Fire. Mr. Bezos says ‘Amazon has premium products at non-premium prices’.
  12. Corniest part by far – From Kindle, Fire is born.

Again, the $199 Kindle Fire is available to preorder at Amazon.

Kindle Fire musings, Kobo Vox as the Dark Horse, Nook Color 2 thoughts

The Kindle Fire is available now for $199 at Amazon.

Earlier Version of Post:

The Kindle Fire will be revealed tomorrow – here’s some pointless speculation nonetheless.

Will Kindle Fire set things on fire?

Opinions are divided and it seems that there’s little guarantee Amazon’s Kindle Fire Tablet is going to dominate the non-iPad market.

  • Amazon has a wealth of advantages when it comes to making a consumption Tablet i.e. Prime, MP3 store, Kindle Store, AWS, lots of infrastructure, lots of customers, great customer experience, etc. Will that be enough? Will that overcome the fact that they haven’t built this Kindle Fire Tablet from the ground up themselves?
  • The Kindle was in the work for 4 years before release. It’s been 4 years since that first Kindle. We are talking about a total of 8 years. How much time has Amazon spent on Kindle Fire?
  • What is going to be the Kindle Fire’s killer feature? Will it have more than one?
  • Amazon seems to be tending towards ‘value for money’ and offering free Prime streaming and ‘Special Offers’. That might work well. However, it suggests that the focus is the low-priced Tablet market and not the iPad.
  • It’s logical but disappointing that Amazon is targeting Nook Color instead of iPad.
  • Will Amazon actually hit $199? Seems really hard to believe they can pull that off.
  • Will the closed nature of the Kindle Fire (probably, almost certainly) turn off people interested in Android Tablets? Will hacks and workarounds convince people to buy it (and root it later)?
  • Is Android too much of a disadvantage (in terms of user experience)? Will Amazon’s custom UI solve that problem?

There are a lot more questions than answers.

Also interesting are the Kindle related musings the launch of the Kindle Fire inspires.

  1. How will Kindle Fire affect Amazon’s focus on the Kindle?
  2. Is it that the Press is focused only on Kindle Fire and that makes it seem Amazon has shifted focus to the Kindle Tablet? There are rumors that the Kindle Team (Lab 126) refused to work on the Tablet and wanted to focus on Kindle. If it’s true I’ll gladly buy any/all of them a drink any time they are in Montreal. A sentiment that probably every Kindle owner shares. Here is the snippet -

    Amazon’s own Kindle group (called Lab 126) apparently opted not to take on the project, in favor of continuing to work solely on next-gen E-Ink-based devices.

    From there, Amazon’s team determined they could build a tablet without the help and experience of Lab 126, so they turned to Quanta

  3. If the previous point is true then it means the one team at Amazon best suited to making a Kindle Tablet didn’t take part. Not a good sign.

Kindle Fire (that name is getting annoying very quickly) is really interesting. Really, really interesting launch for Amazon.

Kobo Vox strikes like the pox?

We found out today about the Kobo Vox eReader Tablet. Kobo joining the party is great and it must worry both B&N and Amazon.

  1. Kobo has very little to lose and can take big risks. Neither B&N nor Amazon can.
  2. It’s global. While B&N only competes with Amazon in the US, Kobo puts pressure on Amazon in lots of markets.
  3. Kobo has done things it doesn’t get much credit for – First $150 eReader, first company to compete with Amazon in lots of markets, their Reading Life feature, lots of coupons and discounts, sells to any device (since its books are in ePub format). It’s more dangerous than people realize.
  4. Both Nook Touch and Kobo Touch are strong competitors to Kindle 3. Amazon has tremendous advantages – But on a device-only basis both Nook Touch and Kobo Touch probably edge the Kindle 3. This suggests that Kobo Vox might give Kindle Fire a real run for its money.
  5. It’s choice. Kobo as a third choice is valuable for the market. Kobo as a second choice in lots of countries is valuable. Kodo as a second choice for ePub Books is very valuable for Nook Color and Sony Reader owners.

Kobo impresses me more every day. You expect it to die out and yet it keeps coming back and keeps putting pressure on Amazon and B&N to evolve faster.

That brings us to the Tablet that we know the least about.

Nook Color 2 – Does B&N really have two Tablets up its sleeve?

If Nate the Great’s B&N has 2 Tablets sources are correct, then B&N is showing more ambition than Amazon and will have -

  1. A $249 Nook Color 2 that is an improvement over the existing $249 Nook Color. You have to imagine that a year of experience and customer feedback gives B&N lots of opportunity to improve what is already a delightful device (better screen than iPad 1, great as a Reading Tablet, etc.).
  2. A $349 Nook Color 2 Acclaim that is focused on gaming and comes with add-ons like a better screen and perhaps more memory.

If this is true then -

  1. B&N is doing what Amazon should have been doing.
  2. It’s sad that instead of leading and innovating in the Tablet space, or even keeping up with iPad and Nook Color (Tablet and Reading Tablet respectively), Amazon is lagging behind by a year or more.
  3. Nook Color must be a pretty big success. For B&N to release two new variants.
  4. B&N is embracing the fact that its Nook business is effectively a billion dollar business. With a good Nook Color 2 and an even better Nook Color 3 B&N could turn it into a $5 billion business in the next 3 years.
  5. Can something designed by Quanta compete effectively with Nook Color 2? How much of a difference will Amazon’s backing make?

If the Gdgt article is true and Kindle Fire is just a PlayBook variant, then it would be extremely disappointing. There’s something special when a company makes a device from the ground up (such as the Kindle). Amazon really should prioritize purity of the device and its purpose over everything else.

Kindle Fire, Nook Color competitor – Kobo Vox eReader Tablet (7″ LCD Tablet)

It seems that even before the Kindle Fire has been announced, we have yet another challenger to the Nook Color’s Reading Tablet crown. It’s the 7″ Kobo Vox eReader Tablet with a LCD screen.

All information on the Kobo Vox eReader Tablet is courtesy the FCC. Engadget had the scoop but didn’t make the effort to actually read the FCC documents and see the picture very helpfully included:

Kindle Fire and Nook Color competitor - Kobo Vox

Kobo Vox challenges Kindle Fire and Nook Color 2

Kobo has filed papers at the FCC for the ‘Kobo Vox eReader Tablet’. Engadget has the scoop on the Kobo Vox eReader Tablet and makes a mess trying to guess what it is. Engadget uses delightful phrases like -

shrouded in bookish mystery

What’s this mystery e-reader?

Is it a reworked version of the relatively recently released Touch Edition?

Well … The fact that it’s named ‘Kobo Vox eReader Tablet’ doesn’t leave much room for speculation, does it? Or that picture included above with ‘LCD’ written right on the screen.

Here’s what we roughly know -

  1. Kobo EReader Reading Tablet with model number K080.
  2. There’s a 7″ LCD screen.
  3. Probably manufactured by Wistron Corporation as all the documents at the FCC are from Wistron. Wistron is located in Taiwan (Taipei to be precise).
  4. It supports 802.11 b, g, and n.
  5. It has a WLAN antenna (chip antenna). Its located at the top left of the device (right above the LCD screen).
  6. Battery has a rating of 3.7V 4000mAh, 14.8 Wh. Model Number is D1-11-04. The Power adapter used supplies 5 Volts at 2.0A. It takes input in the 100 to 240 Volts range – so it might be a worldwide release.
  7. There’s mention of rotating 90 degrees, 180 degrees, and 270 degrees. Suggests either an accelerometer or a choice between Portrait and Landscape mode.
  8. The dimensions are 19 centimeters by 13 centimeters. That’s roughly 7.48″ by 5.11″. Quite compact for a 7″ screen device. The bezel seems to be a bit thick at 1.5 centimeters on the side (0.59″).
  9. There’s a LCD screen. The screen dimensions are 15.5 centimeters (6.1″) and 9 centimeters (3.54″). Which would make the diagonal around 7.05″. So we have a 7″ LCD screen.
  10. Testing took place roughly between August 30th to September 14th. Suggests a release should be imminent. Testing took place at least in USA, Zürich (perhaps, not sure), Canada, and Taiwan. Again, suggests a possible worldwide release.
  11. Support for MicroSD cards. Support for a headset. USB Support.
  12. There were some internal modifications made after initial submission.

Will add more when more news about the Kobo Vox Reading Tablet becomes available. For the moment it seems that just like Kindle vs Nook vs Kobo, we will see a very interesting eReader tablet battle – Kindle Fire vs Nook Color vs Kobo Vox.
