Amazon Could Sell 12 Million Fires in 2012

How many Kindle Fires will Amazon sell next year?

Enough to claim a decent chunk of the tablet market, says Citi analyst Mark Mahaney.

Mahaney estimates that Amazon will sell 12 million Fires in 2012 to wrest a 15 percent share of the tablet market from Apple. If he’s right, the Fire will end up generating about $3.2 billion in revenue, or about 5 percent of Amazon’s total.

“The path is clear,” says Mahaney. “With an aggressive pricing strategy, an unmatched content cross-sell opportunity, a market-smart form factor, and probable product improvements — Amazon can own a substantial segment of the Tablet market.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
