Amazon Kindle Fire has more than 50% of Android Tablet Market

Based on comScore's newly released data, the Kindle Fire is a big success. The Kindle Fire, introduced to the market in November 2011, has seen rapid adoption among buyers of tablets. Within the Android tablet market, Kindle Fire has almost doubled its share in the past two months from 29.4% share in December 2011 to 54.4% share in February 2012, already establishing itself as the leading Android tablet by a wide margin.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab family followed with a market share of 15.4% in February, followed by the Motorola Xoom with 7% share. The Asus Transformer and Toshiba AT100 rounded out the top five with 6.3% and 5.7% market share, respectively. See the comScore report for more details.

It is clear now why Google wants to also offer a low-cost Android tablet. Amazon is not working with Google on their tablets. Amazon developed its own Android based OS and has its own app store. Amazon is a big threat for the Android tablet market, if nobody else steps up to compete with the $199 tablet. Amazon is also expected to release new tablets this year including a 10 inch model.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
