Amazon will have sold 6 million of its tablet Kindle Fire, confirming the tablet as the first serious competitor to the iPad 2 in sales.
Advancing these numbers is the analyst Jordan Rohan, an investment banker at Stifel Nicolaus. According to Rohan, the tablet Kindle Fire has reached the 6 million sales in late 2011. Given that Amazon`s tablet went on sale on November 15, the sales figures are impressive.
Rohan had previously estimated sales of 5 million units.
It has long been said that Amazon was the only one that could compete with Apple in the sale of tablets and, according to these numbers did.
If Amazon sold 6 million in less than two months, equivalent to more than 40 million sales. Comparing to the results released by Apple in 2011, which sold over 36 million iPads, this means that Amazon sell more tablet that Apple itself. Kindle The Fire can even overcome the iPad, if the numbers were maintained.
The confirmation should come soon, because it is time for companies to disclose the results, as has happened with many companies, and Amazon has not released the results of 2011.
