Kindle Fire: So Hot, It’s Sold Out

If you have a high-speed Internet connection at home (either DSL or cable Internet), you’ve probably set up a Wi-Fi home network so you can connect all around the house on your laptop.

You may also use your home Wi-Fi network to browse the Internet with your smartphone or tablet.

But there’s another device that’s great to use with your high-speed Internet home network, and that device was in the news this morning.

Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet

Sold Out...But Stay Tuned.

It’s Amazon’s Kindle Fire (which lets you browse the Web whenever you’re connected to Wi-Fi).

So, why is the Kindle Fire in the news today?

Because Amazon announced earlier this morning that the Kindle Fire:

  • is the most successful product launch in Amazon.com’s history
  • has earned over 10,000 5-star reviews
  • has been the #1 best-selling product on Amazon.com since it was introduced about 9 months ago
  • has captured 22% of tablet sales in the U.S.
  • is now sold out

That’s right: sold out. As in, no more Kindle Fire. Forever.

But don’t fret if you’ve been putting off buying one.

Amazon is holding a press event in Los Angeles next Thursday, September 6, and there are lots of rumors about Amazon announcing a new line of Kindle Fires.
