DigiTimes' sources believe Amazon (AMZN) will ship 4M Kindle Fire units in 2011 - a solid start, but well below the 11M-15M iPad (AAPL) units expected to ship in Q4. It's also claimed Amazon will sell 15M+ units of its new e-ink Kindle models (I, II) this year, a sales rate that would represent a major ramp from the 6M Kindles IDC estimates Amazon sold in 1H '11.
