The Next Web has details of Amazon’s so-called “sell out” of the Kindle Fire:
The announcement all but confirms that Amazon will debut new tablet devices next week, with its founder and CEO Jeff Bezos noting that the company will “offer our customers the best hardware, the best prices, the best customer service, the best cross-platform interoperability, and the best content ecosystem.”
Amazon has a coherent strategy to fight the dominant iPad in the tablet space – but the Kindle Fire needs to expand beyond the United States’ borders to have any chance of real success. Otherwise, it’ll remain an option only for budget buyers. By expanding overseas and adding a 10-inch tablet and smartphone into the mix, Amazon could become a serious player in the gadget world.
