Nintendo 3DS is the most pre-ordered console of all time on Amazon UK

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2011

After selling 500,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS handheld on day 1 in Japan, Nintendo has hit another milestone. Amazon UK has announced that they have received more pre-orders for the 3DS than any other gaming console they’ve previously sold.

The Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii all come in second to Nintendo’s portable glasses-free 3D gaming sensation. They didn’t reveal the exact numbers, but 3DS pre-orders were 20% higher than the PS3, 56% higher than the Wii and 255% higher than the DSi. Looks like the big N has a huge hit on it’s hands.

Verizon sold more than 500,000 iPhones in first pre-order day

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2011

We recently heard through an official statement from Verizon that the launch of the iPhone 4 broke all of the companies previous first day sales records, although we don’t have any specific numbers. Now according to analyst Phil Cusick from JPMorgan, it looks like Verizon may have sold as many as 500,000 iPhone 4′s on the first day when it was made available to pre-order to existing customers.

The previous record holder for first day sales at Verizon was the Motorola Droid, which sold 100,000 units on the first day. For now we should take this with a grain of salt since these 500,000 iPhone 4 sales are based on analysis rather than facts from Verizon, but it sounds reasonable to us.

Verizon breaks first day sales record with iPhone 4 pre-orders in just two hours

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2011

Well, that was quick. It took Verizon just two hours of having the iPhone 4 available for pre-order to break its all-time record for first day sales of a single device. That’s even more impressive when you consider the fact that it only opened up pre-orders to its own subscribers, and it started at the dead of night.

This means that between 3AM and 5AM yesterday morning, more people ordered the iPhone 4 than Verizon has been able to sell on any full product launch day. We don’t have actual numbers, but it is obviously a lot.

PlayBook might hit 6 million sales mark in 2011

Posted in Playbook by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

Things are looking up for the BlackBerry PlayBook from RIM. We know that it will have a comparable (or even better) battery life than the iPad. And now there is talk of a 6 million sales figure for the year ahead, according to RBC Capital Markets GM Mike Abramsky.

This figure comes from the data of an independent survey of 1,100 consumers that found out that 6% of respondents were likely to purchase the BlackBerry PlayBook as soon as it arrives. To put that in perspective, that is almost double the interest shown ahead of the iPad’s launch, so when you extrapolate that you get 6 million. Can RIM actually get those sales?

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

Barnes and Noble has announced some interesting numbers. Since the 25th of December customers have ordered 150% more subscriptions than the total number sold over the entire previous 12 months. It amounts to a massive 650,000 in just two months.

This figure includes digital periodical subscriptions and single-issue e-magazines and e-newspapers from the NOOKnewsstand to NOOKcolor owners. Those are impressive numbers. No figures were released as to the number of NookColor devices that have been sold but the company says that sales “continue to be very strong.”

Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

Despite a poor economy leading to poorer sales than the company was used too, Nintendo has announced that it still ended up with the best selling gaming systems of 2010 according to numbers from the NPD Group. The Wii was the best selling game console for the year with 7 million units sold in2010. Not bad at all.

Likewise, the DS was the best selling portable with 8.5 million sold in 2010. Nintendo had great sales during the holiday season, with some impressive sales numbers in December to help it along.

Barnes & Noble claims great holiday sales thanks to Nook

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2011

Barnes & Noble hinted at the fact that the Nook may have led to a major turnaround in its business. They certainly needed it. The company said that its “comparable store sales,” or those at large stores open for more than 1.25 years, were almost double what they had expected, at 9.7 percent. So what happened? Not surprisingly, they credited sales of Nook e-readers to the overall spike and to having its best-ever single day of sales on December 23. Seems like the Nook has saved the day.

The company said that more details will be made available on January 6. The company’s paper sales have been declining, especially at retail, so they have turned more toward digital devices and Apple-style displays that push the Nook.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

The Samsung Galaxy Tab that went on sale with LG U+ last week is getting some pretty impressive sales figures. We’re talking around 1,000 units per day. LG is obviously happy with these numbers. LG U+ has a variety of plans to go along with the Galaxy Tab, plus they are selling it for free if you commit to a three-year contract.

As for its specifications, it is the same as the SKT version, including a 1GHz processor, a 7-inch WSVGA LCD display, Android 2.2 Froyo, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, 3G and T-DMB support, 16GB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot.

New Kindle Pre-Order SalesAmazon offers a lot of items to buy. Almost anything you can imagine. But which of those items is it’s bestselling product? Well, that honor now goes to the third-generation Kindle. Amazon has announced that their latest and greatest Kindle has become their bestselling product of all time.

That’s largely due to an aggressive price that’s been “low enough that people don’t have to choose,” between an e-reader and a tablet. Sadly, we still don’t know the exact figure of Kindle sales, but at least we know that it is a runaway success.

Call of Duty: Black Ops surpasses $1 Billion in sales worldwide

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

You’re playing it. I’m playing it. Seems like everyone is playing Black Ops. Call of Duty: Black Ops has now broken the $1 billion sales mark worldwide, in just a month since its launch. Over half of that figure was achieved during its first five days.

It also broke the previous worldwide record of $550 million which was set by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2009. If you’ve played the game you know why it is doing so well. It is an awesome gaming experience. We wonder how many more sales records it will shatter.

Amazon may ship 8 million Kindles

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

Amazon could exceed expectations and ship as many as eight million Kindles this year, according to two tipsters. Analysts have estimated five million, but the new figure would be about 60 percent higher. About 2.4 million Kindles shipped in 2009, according to Bloomberg.

The claims aren’t verified yet but were supported by Amazon’s own public results. The company shipped “millions” of Kindles in 73 days this fall and exceeded all of its 2009 sales in that period.

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on December 13th, 2010

Amazon has been keeping their Kindle sales figures to themselves, until now. They recently announced that “in just the first 73 days of this holiday quarter, we’ve already sold millions of our all-new Kindles.” Well, we know that this at least means that they have sold 2 million of the new Kindles.

We aren’t sure what prompted them to make such an announcement, but they seem pretty happy about the sales, even if they aren’t high enough to give us concrete numbers.

Samsung sells one million Galaxy Tabs

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on December 3rd, 2010

When your device is picked up and marketed by all four major carriers in America, you can move a lot of units. This arrangement has helped Samsung’s Galaxy Tab sales soar. It has just passed the one million mark in global sales of the 7-inch Android tablet.

However they point out that Samsung’s not clear on whether that’s units in the sales channel or units in the hands of consumers. Either way, one million units is something to celebrate. Only 600,000 had been sold as of November 22nd. Now they are hoping to move 1.5 million of them by the year’s end.
