Amazon runs out of Kindle Fires

Written by Nick Farrell



No plans to get new ones in

Amazon has run out of Kindle Fires and at this point has no plans to get any new ones in until the new model is out.

According to the company website the Kindle Fire is sold out, and that in just nine months, Kindle Fire has captured 22% of tablet sales in the US. All good stuff but what if you wanted one? Well you will have to wait, says Amazon.

"Kindle Fire is sold out, but we have an exciting roadmap ahead—we will continue to offer our customers the best hardware, the best prices, the best customer service, the best cross-platform interoperability, and the best content ecosystem,” the site said.

The company announcement covers only Kindle Fires sold online by Amazon. The touch-screen tablet and e-reader remains readily available at many stores that carry consumer electronics and can be found discounted at $179, from $200. It is also designed to fuel a bit of hype for the launch of the new Fire which will be announced next week. Still that means that there will be a few weeks when you can't buy a Kindle Fire.

We doubt any of our European readers will lose much sleep over this, the Fire is unavailable here anyway.
