We bought 3 kindle fires for Christmas as it was perfectly priced, durable and tied to a great ecosystem for books, video, web and apps/games.

Or, Amazon stuffed the channel for Christmas, sold far less than everyone estimated and is now paying the penalty with a complete glut in inventory that they can't get rid of.

Quite surprised the kindle fire lasted this long. It’s not like it was cutting edge. The only thing it had going for it was Amazon!

Hmm, Target dumped their Kindle departments, then announced 25 stores will test a new iPad department. Curiouser and curiouser.
