Some of you might know that Amazon announced their new e-book reader called the Kindle on Monday. Following the announcement, the blogosphere said it was bound to failure (where have I heard that before?). As of 2:25am Wednesday, November 21st Amazon has sold out of its initial run of Kindles (they should be back in stock on the 29th).
There is no telling if this is a consequence of consumer demand exceeding Amazon’s forecasts as to how many people would want this thing, or if Amazon is taking a page out of Nintendo’s book and creating a little product scarcity to drum up business. All I know is I got mine in the mail today, and I’m already in love.
Flop? I think not.
