Amazon's next revolution

Interesting artcile:

..
Barclays Capital predicts Kindle devices will produce $840 million in profit on $3.7 billion in sales in 2012. That's roughly 20% of Amazon's total sales and profit today. A recent Citigroup report pegged total Kindle sales at roughly 500,000 units.
...
Advertisers and publishers, especially magazine producers like Fortune's parent, Time Inc., are salivating over the prospect of a color-screen Kindle. (Fortune is available on Kindle and is in talks with Amazon to offer unique content on the device.) Display makers such as Plastic Logic say color is only a couple of years away. But Bezos says the technology is nowhere near ready. So what's next? The only hint he gives about his "10-year road map" comes in reaction to an observation that the wireless connectivity could foster interaction (think virtual book clubs) among Kindle owners. He calls the suggestion "very perceptive."

Note that the Citigroup report referred only to Kindle 1 sales in 2008; it did not estimate Kindle 2 sales in 2009 (already estimated at over 300,000).
