    LOL, love these types of blog posts.

    Since no one has seen an Amazon tablet, we don't know what they're like, how much they'll cost, or what features or specs they'll have. I could just as easily write the following headlines and all of them could be valid:

    - Amazon could sell five tablets next quarter
    - Amazon could sell five thousand tablets next quarter
    - Amazon could sell fifty thousand tablets next quarter
    - Amazon could sell five hundred thousand tablets next quarter
    - Amazon could sell fifty million tablets next quarter

    Love blogs but miss journalism and statistics based on research/scientific method.

    They have a lot of stuff that they can bundle with the tablet in case sales need an extra pickup. Free streaming, free Amazon Prime, a certain credit in e-books.

    But if they release a tablet with really good hardware, at that price point, people may just pick them up.

    They could also make the deal unbeatable if they bundled it with a free/heavily discounted base model Kindle.
