Each new Kindle Fire costs $209.63 to make, IHS iSuppli estimates, meaning Amazon (AMZN -1.4%) would lose just under $10 on each device it sells. Amazon hopes the tablet encourages users to buy more products and services from it; factoring in expected sales of digital content, iSuppli calculates Amazon will generate a $10 marginal profit on each Fire sold.
