Amazon Increasing Kindle Fire Supply to Meet Demand

Amazon has cranked up its Kindle Fire orders to more than 5 million units to meet the holiday season demand.

Anonymous sources from upstream component suppliers report that Amazon has raised up its Kindle Fire orders above 5 million units to be sold before the end of 2011. Amazon has already faced such raise-ups once during the middle of Q3 2011, cranking up the number of units from the original 3.5 million to 4 million units.

The sources states that Amazon has increased its volume to more than 5 million because it believes demand for the Kindle Fire will become even stronger by the time Black Friday passes and consumers are in Holiday shopping mode in December. The benefit from the short-term orders is shared with Amazon’s upstream partners including Wintek, Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT), LG Display, Ilitek, Quanta Computer, Aces Connectors and Wah Hong Industrial.

On Wednesday, Amazon cited that the Kindle Fire tablet will support “thousands” of apps right out of the box. The tablet will sport a customized version of Google’s Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” OS, denoting that the most of the apps hosted by Amazon’s own Appstore for Android will be compatible with the device. Owners will also be credited with a free app each day. Thanks to Amazon’s current Free-App-Of-The-Day promotion.

Kindle Fire features a 7-inch IPS display with a 1024 x 600 resolution and 169 pixels per inch. It do provides a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4 SoC clocked at 1 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, but there is no SD card slot, 8 hours of continuous reading with Wi-Fi turned off, and more.
