iPad Officially the #1 Selling Tablet Now at Amazon, Despite Premium Third-Party Price
Updating a post yesterday, as of this morning Apple's iPad is now officially the #1 selling tablet in the Amazon Store, and that's without Amazon having any warehoused copies of its own to sell. The obligatory screenshot, of course, is above. Both the 16GB wifi iPad and the 64GB wifi iPad are now in the top 25 among Amazon's "Bestsellers in Computers and Accessories," but the 32GB model is lagging behind due largely to a perhaps felicitous typo in in its listing. The prices of these third-party Amazon Marketplace listings are settling a bit, but we're still talking about a premium of a hundred bucks or so over the prices charges in the Apple Store and at some big box retailers.
