The research firm says its preliminary estimate is that the bill of materials for the Kindle Fire is $191.65; adding manufacturing costs, and the estimated total for the $199 device is $209.63."

The article further states that Amazon is planning on increased sales of associated products to offset the costs of production. Certainly an interesting marketing strategy.
