JP Morgan expecting 5 million Kindle Fire to be sold this quarter JP Morgan analyst Douglas Anmuth has upped his expectation for Kindle Fire sales in the Q4, from 3 million to 5 million.
Basing the new number on supply chain checks, the analyst says "production momentum" for the tablet is ever-increasing, suggesting extremely strong pre-order demand.

Manufacturers have been experiencing rush orders in the past weeks, reads the research note.

Furthermore, the note says that Amazon will create a 10-inch model next year with a 3G radio.

Some reports have Amazon seeing 50,000 pre-orders per day for the $199 tablet which is built around the Amazon ecosystem but lacks some standard features like a mic and camera.
