Amazon Will Sell 5 Million Kindles (Kindlen?) This Year

Barclays Capital analyst Douglas Anmuth is predicting that Amazon will sell 5 million Kindles this year, putting it in the first place in terms of dedicated e-reader sales. Anmuth sees the iPad and the Kindle “bifurcating” the market for e-readers with the Kindle running the low-end while iPad takes the high.

This doesn’t mean the Kindle is beating the iPad. Gene “The Animal” Munster thinks Apple will sell 10.7 million iPads in 2010 and 21 million in 2011, which is pretty darn nuts.
