Amazon To Increase Fire Production to Meet Demand

Amazon To Increase Fire Production to Meet Demand

Demand for Amazon’s upcoming Fire tablet has apparently been very strong, as the company revealed they will be increasing production of the tablet in order to meet pre-orders.

CEO Jeff Bezos told investors that “based on what we’re seeing with Kindle Fire pre-orders, we’re increasing capacity and building millions more than we’d already planned.”

Announced last month, the new tablet, which will run a unique form of the Android OS and support Android apps, set the tech world ablaze with its interesting cloud-content approach, new web browser, and low price: $199.

Some analysts have predicted the Fire will sell as many as 15 million units before the end of the year; it releases November 20, 2011.
