    Digitimes Research analyst James Wang, has high expectations for Amazon's newest Kindle Fire HD tablets. He predicts that sales of both versions of the tablet will cumulatively hit 5 Million sales by the end of the year. Wang expects that the 7-inch version of the Kindle Fire HD will likely sell 2.9 million units, while the more expensive 8.9-inch Fire HD will ship an estimated 2.2 million units. Here's a quote from the source:

    Considering how quickly the original Kindle Fire sold, it wouldn't be surprising if his numbers were accurate. We shall know in a few short months.
