Kindle Paperwhite with Special Offers leads Amazon Sales Charts
Amazon has started to offer the new Kindle line-up for pre-order yesterday. All Kindles are in the top spots of the Amazon Electronics bestseller lists. The new Kindle Fire HD is though not the bestselling device.
Amazon unveiled a massive new line-up of KindleeReader and Kindle Firetablets yesterday. Amazon started the pre-order of the new Kindles right after the announcement. The first Kindle devices start to ship mid September.
Right now the new $119 Kindle Paperwhite eReader with Special Offers leads the bestseller charts. It will ship October 1st. The new Kindle Fire HD 7 is on the 2nd spot selling for $199. It will ship next week. Places 3 to 5 are occupied by the Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Paperwhite 3G and Kindle Paperwhite 3G with Special Offers. The new flagship tablet Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch is only on 6th place.
One reason for this is that the iPad competitor tablet is shipping much later on November 20. It could also be that customers want to first see some hands-on reviews of the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 before they buy. The 3rd reason could be that the 8.9-inch tablet size is "owned" by the iPad and that does not suddenly change.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
