A More Modest Amazon Tablet Guess: Two Million in 2011

Last month, Forrester started the bidding on Amazon tablet predictions and guessed that Jeff Bezos could move three to five million by the end of this year. Today, Barclays analyst Anthony DiClemente offers a more modest forecast: He thinks Amazon will sell two million seven-inch Android tablets this year. But he thinks that number will jump to 6.4 million in 2012, and that Amazon will also sell another 1.5 million units of a 10-inch model he predicts will show up next year. Context: Barclays predicts Apple will sell 48.7 million iPads in 2012.
