Amazon said in a statement that Kindle Fire HD tablets ordered online were on their way to buyers and more would be available at US consumer electronics shops beginning Friday.

"Kindle Fire HD has been Amazon's bestselling product worldwide since launch, and that was before we even started shipping the best tablet we've ever built," said Kindle Vice President Dave Limp.

"We think customers are going to love web browsing, email, gaming, watching TV shows, reading magazines, and more on the large, stunning HD screen, with fast wifi and exceptional audio," Limp added.
