Kindle Fire Grabs Over 50 Percent of the Android Tablet Market

29 Apr

Glad to be a Kindle Fire owner, looking forward to the Kindle Fire 2

The bewildering array of Android hardware used to mean that no single device had the power to grab a significant market share of the Android tablet market. That all changed as soon as Amazon’s Kindle Fire hit the scene.

According to latest figures from market research firm comScore, in a little over four months following its release, the Amazon’s Kindle Fire has come from nowhere to grab a whopping 54.4 percent of the U.S. Android tablet market. Way behind the Kindle Fire is the Samsung Galaxy Tab with 15.4 percent, and way behind that is the Motorola Xoom with 7 percent market share.

    Those Kindle Fire numbers are surprising. Think I’ll be contributing to those numbers soon, buying myself a Fire. Interesting post!
