They probably make little or no money on the actual hardware sale.
They are hoping that the hardware sale drives content sales.
If they sold an open device, and people just downloaded the Kindle app and bought books from Amazon instead, that doesn't help them.
Basically they are squeezed between a better ecosystem device in the Fire and a better open device in the Nexus 7. That doesn't leave them much chance.
