Barclays analyst Anthony DiClemente has gazed into his crystal ball and provided some possible Amazon Kindle tablet sales figures.
Despite being less than half of some previous estimates, DiClemente’s comparatively modest figures would still make the Amazon Kindle tablet the biggest selling Android slate of 2011.
Forrester in particular reckoned Amazon might punt as many as 5 million Kindle tablets this year, however DiClemente suggests that a significantly lower 2 million is more like it.
The Amazon Kindle tablet is expected to arrive in November with a hugely competitive price tag of $250. Coupled with a heavy presence on Amazon’s home page, it’s likely to sell a shitload of units.
The first Amazon Kindle tablet is said to weigh in with a 7in display, 6GB internal storage, no cameras, and sans 3G. For $250, that sounds fair enough to us.
A 10in model, codenamed “Hollywood”, is expected to follow in early 2012.
