ABI Research estimates Amazon (AMZN +2.8%) only needs to generate about $10 in content sales a month per Kindle Fire to generate a cozy 20% profit margin on the device. It's a plausible goal that helps make the Kindle Fire a "credible proposition," according to the firm.

    "per month", "per Kindle". Yes, right. It's the same as expecting Apple's higher-end 500 million iOS devices to each generate $10 per month per device, or $60 billion per year. AAPL's revenue from iTunes is a fraction of that.

    This is just hope, but the ability of AMZN's management and analysts is to feed those hopes pushing always in the future their realization.

    10 per month is too high to spend on kindle. I rarely pay for apps even on iphone. I mostly get free apps. May be the comment was meant to say 10 bucks per year

    Consumers using Kindle are much more frugal than those using iPad. It is not possible for Kindle users spend more money on content than iPad users.
