Pacific Crest raises its estimates for Kindle Fire (AMZN) sales to 14.9M this year from a prior 12.7M forecast, or higher if AMZN comes out with new 7-inch and 9-inch models by summer. The estimates are based on a survey showing that 30% of consumers planning on buying a tablet computer this past holiday season intended to get a Fire vs. 38% for iPad (AAPL).
