Amazon Could Sell 6 Million Kindle Fires This Year: Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs is predicting that Amazon will sell 6 million Kindle Fire tablets by the end of the year.

The Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal has more: “The firm’s analysts also projected that Amazon could sell another 8 million of its other Kindles in the fourth quarter for a total of 14 million in the period in which the Kindle Fire was introduced. Goldman projects that Amazon will sell between 15.5 million and 20.5 million Kindle Fires during the first full year of availability.”

Despite the fact that the device has had lukewarm reviews, the $199 price tag makes it attractive. For other tablets available on the market today, check out our list of The 5 Best Tablets To Give For Christmas.
