Amazon is a company that know how to create good stuff and make great deals for its potential buyers. This is why nobody is really surprised by the booming success that the company is having not just with the Kindle Fire HD, but with their products as well. A couple of days ago a Forbes author and analyst McCue wrote that the Kindle Fire HD is on fire, from a sales perspective, and that the retail giant Amazon was rated number one for its customer service. ForeSee reports that Amazon was able to successfully sell over 26.5 million items in a single peak day which certainly has to be some sort of record! And speaking of hot deals, did you know that students can get the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch tablet with a $50 discount? Read more about it here.
|A best seller across all categories!|
The holidays have come and gone and Amazon has emerged victories for the eight time when it comes to customer satisfaction! Their customer service, secure web servers and brilliant delivery are top notch and it is really no wonder why the general public and business owners love Amazon, and thus the Kindle Fire HD has big shoes to fill and a reputation to keep! And it has kept its reputation quite well so far.
My little rant
The Kindle Fire HD is no longer observed by tech fans as an Amazon consumer device, but a fully-functional and extremely well-made mobile tablet device. I find it sad that a lot of people still look down on the KF HD with argumentation that it forked version of Android OS "sucks" or with a negative connotation that Apple is the only company that provides quality products and the rest is "trash". Well you know what? A lot of people like me will tell you that we enjoy the capabilities of Amazon's forked Android OS and that this device is well-build and very elegant. Owning an iPad will not buy snobs class nor does it make you a better person. If you wish to own an iPad because of its impressive specs and features then it is a good choice that you have made. But, if you are someone who thinks that these devices will buy you love, respect and admiration of your peers, then I feel sorry for you and I don't really know what you are doing on this blog in the first place.
