Changewave has just released the results of survey of 2,607 American consumers, and the results suggest that the Kindle Fire is going to have positive effect on Amazon's bottom line.
Here are the key takeaways:
- 6% of all respondents own Kindle Fire
- KF owners are more likely to buy from Amazon (29% vs 19%)
- Out of 254 KF owners, 54% were very satisfied and 38% were somewhat satisfied with their tablet, compared to 74% of iPad owners who are very satisfied
- KF owners love the cost, like the color screen
- They also hate the lack of volume buttons and the missing camera
That first detail is definitely the most important, but it was buried in the results. 6% of the survey group own Kindle Fire, and it was only on the market for 2 months when this survey was conducted. We haven't seen numbers like that since the iPad. The iPad actually had better numbers, but still, the 6% is impressive.
