Amazon states the the latest Windows offering has beaten absolutely any product they have ever had for pre-order in the UK. Better come up with a new trick Harry Potter, because even you have lost the king of pre-order title and crown.
Amazon has sold more copies of Windows 7 in the first eight hours of its release for pre-order back in July than Vista did during its entire pre-order period. No big shocker there. Maybe Vista is why Windows 7 is selling like mad; people want to get rid of it in favor of something else.
“The launch of Windows 7 has superseded everyone’s expectations, storming ahead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as the biggest grossing pre-order product of all-time at Amazon.co.uk, and demand is still going strong,” says Brian McBride, Amazon UK MD. And if it is beating Harry in the UK? It’s gotta be in high demand. The official release of Windows 7 is tomorrow, October 22, 2009.
