Jeff Bezos said today:
""The Kindle, in terms of demand, is outpacing our expectations,""
The build up to the SEGWAY was hyped like the Kindle - as life changing as the light bulb ... while SEGWAYS are cool and every now and then you hear a celebrity (like Steve Wozniak) crashing on one during a SEGWAY polo match ... the SEGWAY has bombed. I give the Kindle 5 years before its either not sold at all or possibly just given away as some sort of Bezos' philanthropy - just to mask dismal sales.
I think a lot of the initial interest was from reviewers and possibly collectors ... as these people receive their units and the novelty wears off ... the only thing that will outpace the Kindle is overstock.
Previously I posited that Bezos will lose millions before he excepts defeat anyway.
