Eric Lai:

I’ve aggregated, crunched and charted the public forecasts of the tech industry’s brightest analysts to see where they think the market for iPads, Amazon Kindle Fires and other Android tablets is headed.



This includes forecasts from both Wall Street and industry analysts, and is current as of March 27, 2012.



It’s a follow-on to my post last year, where I also collected forecasts for 2011′s iPad and tablet markets.



Interestingly, the consensus on 2011′s iPad market with only six weeks left in the year (mid-November) was for 33.5 million iPads sold.



That turned to out to be a 27% undercount (based on the consensus of 42.7 million iPads sold in 2011).
