The first major challenger to the iPad is shaping up to be a success. Amazon’s new $199 tablet, the Kindle Fire, outsold the iPad in Target stores on Black Friday. According to Goldman Sachs, the Kindle Fire was also “sharply outselling” the Nook Color from Barnes & Noble in stores. Amazon also sold four times as many Kindle devices on its website on Black Friday as it did in 2010.
