Already outpaced Samsung Galaxy tabs


Amazon’s Kindle Fire seems to be gaining quite a bit of traction and analysts expect it to beat all other Android based tablets in the last quarter of 2012.

It sounds pretty impressive for a device which has gone on sale just recently and it is not even available in quite a few markets. IHS believes Amazon will manage to ship 3.9 million units by the end of the year, seizing a 13.8 percent market share. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series tablets will rank third, with a 4.8 percent share.

Due to the somewhat unexpected success of the new Kindle tablet, IHS revised its overall Q4 tablet sales estimate to 64.7 million units, up 7.7 percent.
