Kindle Fire's 2000 pre-orders per hour make iPad's launch look black and white

With an average of more than 2000 pre-orders per hour, Kindle Fire is moving towards the best selling tablet launch in history -yes, above iPad’s and iPad2’s launches.

The guys from Cult of Android received this leak (the Alaska sheet for the Kindle Fire pre orders) from a trustable source. The sheet shows over a quarter million pre/orders in 5 days!

A verified source within the Seattle based online retail giant has provided Cult of Android with exclusive screenshots of Amazon’s internal inventory management system Alaska (Availability Lookup and SKU Aggregator). 
These leaked shoots show that orders for Amazon’s Android-based tablet are racking up at an average rate of over 2,000 units per hour, or over 50,000 per day.
In the five days since Amazon put the Kindle Fire up on their official site, over 250,000 tablets have been preordered. If this level of consumer demand for the Kindle Fire continues, Amazon will have 2.5 million preorders for the device before it officially goes on sale on November 15th.
Those numbers make the Kindle Fire’s launch likely to be the biggest tablet launch in history, beating both the iPad and iPad 2 in first month sales.

The original iPad sold 300,000 units on April 3, 2010, its first day of availability. In the first month, iPad sales amounted to over a million units. By the time the iPad 2 came around in March of this year, Apple managed to rack up an estimated 2.5 million units in first month of sales. 
Right now, the Kindle Fire looks like a lock to dwarf the iPad’s launch. It also seems like it might outsell the iPad 2 if this level of consumer demand continues. 
Amazon’s wild breakaway success with the Kindle Fire is even more apparent when compared to companies besides Apple. For example, Motorola only managed to sell 100,000 Xoom units in its month and a half earlier this year. In addition, Research In Motion’s long anticipated 
BlackBerry tablet, the PlayBook, only managed to sell an estimated 250,000 units in its first month.

As mentioned yesterday, those conversations held on a daily basis had their ground on the now evident reality: a huge potential demand for the equation of Color + Quality of Content + Quality of Service. Amazon is swinging right now for an inevitable home run.

If you are thinking on getting a Kindle Fire do it through Amazon.

It’s some exciting moments technology is going through right now, whether it’s the Kindle Fire’s show time or iPad2's, many other players are waiting their turn to step on stage, and with an infinite demand for this market they will sure have their chance to perform. We will be covering them too… who knows maybe we might even get some autographs… ;-)

Until tomorrow
