derGoldstein writes: From Business Insider: "Amazon is ramping up production on its new Kindle Fire tablet after seeing a huge demand, according to the company's earnings report.
In a statement, Jeff Bezos said Kindle Fire pre-orders are causing Amazon to increase capacity and produce "millions more" tablets than it had originally planned. It seems like we finally have a viable competitor to the iPad. This is the first time we've seen a tablet manufacturer talk about producing "millions" of new tablets due to high demand."
