TechCrunch is reporting that the Kindle Fire is becoming Best Buy’s best -selling tablet.

Amazon’s first foray into the tablet world seems to be a runaway success. The Fire has occupied the top spot on Amazon’s best sellers list for weeks even prior to the device shipping. Now, at Best Buy, the $199 Fire sits higher the 16GB iPad as the top selling device in the hot category. Yep, it’s safe to say that Amazon is well on its way to officially winning the Android tablet wars.

So yes, if you look at it, the Kindle Fire holds the #1 spot. The reality is that there is only one Kindle Fire and there are 12 different iPad 2 models. Mind you, out of the 10 best selling tablets at Best Buy, 5 of them are iPads. At any rate, it’s good news for Amazon.

  • Don’t get me wrong here, I am a hugeeeeeee Apple fan, but I did purchase a fire and it’s really nice. Its a great tablet for its price.

    • Most reviews say otherwise.

      • Those reviews are from, more than likely, critics. I’m not a critic… just someone who needed a good cheap tablet, which is what i got. lol and I’m not ‘most reviews’ i guess.

  • stop hating the fire is kicking butt

    • Kindle Fire starts “selling” with money-losing firesale.

  • But there are more android tablets than you can count, so I think ultimately there is really no point to trying to figure out what tabnlet is more popular
