As reported by DigiTimes, ODM orders for Kindle Fire tablets are going to cut 2 times, with 6 million shipped during the fourth quarter of 2011 to 3 million units in the first quarter of 2012. Orders popular in
USA and in the world of tablets Kindle Fire and the Nook, apparently, will be reduced to 0.8-1.0 million units per month in the first quarter of 2012, immediately after the “Christmas holidays”.
Despite this, market participants noted that the decline in demand for the new Kindle Fire tablets is consistent with market forecasts, previously announced, and therefore a significant impact on the overall market
will not have.
Even the manufacturers of touch panels used in the Kindle Fire and Nook, immune from problems, as the orders on the touch panel from the Apple remain a reliable source of income for them. In particular,
Wintek’s consolidated revenues could reach $300-333 million in the first quarter of 2012, a TPK can earn nearly $466 million for each month of the current quarter.
