Kindle Fire second only to iPad

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. This gives you an idea of how other Android tablets are doing on the market.

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. At $199, the Fire is undoubtedly a good deal, but in case you are in the market for an affordable content oriented tablet, Barns & Noble’s Nook is also worth considering.
