Analyst Estimates 6 Million Kindle Fires Sold

Amazon is announcing its fourth quarter and year end results tomorrow, and while they are often tight lipped about sales figures, analysts are beginning to speculate.

Jordan Rohan, an analyst for Stifel Nicolas, is estimating that Amazon sold 6 million Kindle Fire tablets in the fourth quarter.

Publisher’s Weekly has more: “Rohan had previously put the number sold at 5 million units. Rohan believes the strong performance of the Fire will provide Amazon with ongoing benefits by increasing the amount of content, including e-books, that new Fire owners will buy. As a result he has upped his revenue forecast for 2012 by over $2 billion to a total of $67 billion. And while Amazon is making no money on the Fire, Rohan notes that as more customers buy digital content, Amazon’s margins could improve because of lower shipping costs.”
