Kindle Fire ships today, a day early

A release from the company this morning says that Amazon's much anticipated 7-inch, $199 slate will beginning showing up on customers' doorsteps a little sooner than anticipated. "We're thrilled to be able to ship Kindle Fire to our customers earlier than we expected." said Amazon's Kindle VP, Dave Limp in the statement. "Kindle Fire quickly became the bestselling item across all of Amazon.com, and based on customer response we're building millions more than we'd planned." Amazon's promotional effort of the Kindle Fire, which many believe could be the first substantial challenger to Apple's iPad in the tablet market, has been closely controlled. For months, Amazon refused to even acknowledge it was developing a tablet. Then, earlier this fall it unveiled a whole new line of Kindles at greatly reduced prices while also introducing the Fire.
