Again, you're really misunderstanding the lesion of the Fire. Its that people want a cheap tablet, but they want a quality tablet more.
I recalled many news blurbs about the spectacular Kindle Fire sales numbers, however, reading now I see you are right. There was an initial surge, low price, trusted provider etc.

My wife got an iPad two from work. It kind of sucks. It's an expensive, single user device, that does things the way Apple things you should do them, rather than how you want, but it works, it's well made and we can get support for it if we need it. We get all the OS upgrades. Things are different with my Android phone. Sure I have way more control, but it was still shiny and new and already HTC and Verizon had moved on to selling the next latest and greatest. I'm on my own for support, I'm no longer getting upgrades and every phone has a custom UI over Android. Sure I could root it, but I shouldn't have to.

I still believe that a quality tablet or phone with standard, supported, OS would have an edge. Will Windows 8 phone (or tablet) be that? I don't know, but I'm interested is seeing how it does. I'd still pick another Android phone over an iPhone, but I've held off upgrading until I see Windows 8 does.
