"Wow. 1.1 million less than what people claimed were pre-ordered. What a disaster. "I wonder when Bezos sells his next million slug. He hasn't sold in awhile. He's worth nearly $30 billion witout ever really earning much. brilliant.
The operative words are "estimated" and "shipped". I'm waiting for AMZN management to actually say the actual number "sold". But that will never happen. "Shipped" don't mean a thing without sell through. RIMM shipped a lot of playbooks too....LOL
And how much is made for every sale ?? LOLJust like rimm, a write off will have to be made..........Med term --> $100
Small profit on the hardware. Big profit on the software. (Think MSFT, amiga.)
