Stat of the Day: JP Morgan forecasts 99m tablet sales in 2012, revising earlier forecasts of 70-80m

JP Morgan forecasts that Apple will ship 45.5 million iPads and Amazon will sell 20 million Kindle Fires in 2012. In all, 99m units will ship next year.

That forecast may be low still. Price wars may result in more shipments. The Kindle Fire may lead Apple to lower its prices. And the tablets in India and China will set the bar even lower. And Google is rumored to be getting into the tablet business next year. I would not be surprised to see JP Morgan and other analysts revising their figures upward yet again, in the coming months.

Last month I was invited by my nephew who works at the Dept. of Education to attend a presentation by Data Wind, the developer of the Aakash tablet computer in Washington DC at the World Bank. The potential to sell low-cost devices like this in the developing world, bundled with internet access is staggering.

Computer World says 10-12 million of these devices may be in the hands of students across India by the end of 2012. The CEO of Data Wind said there are 240m students in India. Here's a write up by the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/on-innovations/hands-on-indias-35-android-tablet-the-aakash-lands-in-america/2011/10/26/gIQAehFsIM_story.html

Data Wind sold out of 30,000 of these low-cost tablets in three days earlier this month and has reportedly achieved pre-order sales of 400,000. http://www.skoolboyz.in/2011/12/worlds-cheapest-tablet-aakash-sold-out.html

Google Music is launching to the public. And you will be able to share any track you buy with your friends on Google+ — who will be able to listen to them without leaving the Google+ stream (you just click the play button, it looks really slick).
