Amazon could sell 12 million Kindle Fires in 2012, will fight fire with... Fire

Amazon could be looking at selling more than 12 million Kindle Fire's in 2012

Citi analyst Mark Mahaney thinks that Amazon could sell as many as 12 million Fires in 2012, which could suck a decent 15-percent share of the tablet market from Apple. If his predictions are right, it would generate up roughly $3.2 billion in revenue for Amazon, or roughly 5-percent of their total revenue.

Mahaney says:

The path is clear, 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.

Whatever ends up happening, it seems Amazon is going to fight fire, with Fire. Oh I did like that one if I may say so myself! I liked it enough to add it to my news title!
