Amazon tablet sales on fire
Amazon's Kindle Fire evidently was a big hit. The internet retailer says it's sold out of the popular tablet computer.
Amazon started selling its first color screen tablet last November. With a price tag of $199, it's provided some real competition for Apple's more expensive iPad.
Amazon won't say how many Kindle Fire tablets it sold, but the company claims it captured 22 percent of U.S. tablet sales over nine months. The news comes just one week before Amazon is expected to announce of a new model.
