The new $49.99 Fire tablet is the fastest-selling Amazon tablet ever, with millions sold since launch — Amazon tablet sales this weekend are up more than 3x year over year.

CNet seems to think it’s the cat’s meow: 5 reasons to buy Amazon’s $50 tablet — and one not to. They also stupidly say it’s good for reading. Only if you hate your eyes.
If Amazon is making a profit on that tablet, consider what the manufacturing cost was. $15? $20?
Anyway, their site — at post time — reports it won’t be in stock until December 24(!).
Hey, Tim Cook, how’s that iPad pricing going?
