Sold Out Already? Holiday Season’s Early Hot Sellers

A special Cyber Monday deal on the Amazon Kindle Fire — $129, down from the usual $159— led to record-breaking sales for the unit. Virtually every retailer has been offering promotions on tablets, ranging from Apple (free engraving on iPads, curiously enough) to sub-$100 “doorbuster” type prices on the most basic 7-inch tablets at Best Buy, Walmart, and other stores. New tablets including the iPad Mini, the Google Nexus 7, and the Microsoft Surface have also drawn the attention of shoppers. All of these factors provide context for Parks Associates research, which indicates that this holiday season marks the first time ever that more households are planning to buy a tablet than a laptop.
