Amazon Kindle Fire owns the U.S. Android tablet market with a 37% share
In the U.S., among other Android slates, the Barnes and Noble Nook took second place with a 10% market share while Samsung Galaxy slates were third with 9% of the market. The Google Nexus 7 was fourth with an 8% market share. Further growth of Amazon's tablet line will seemingly have to come from the release of the low priced tablets to other countries. China would seem to be a great market and with the recent launch of Amazon's app store in the country, we could see the Kindle Fire follow suit.

Yeah, for those who get the Kindle, mod it and you can get the Play store to work.

If this true, then why google & LG saying they can not meet the dimand for Nexus devices. So it is a shame that LG can not not produce few hundred devices per month to meet nexus demand...LOL.

Congrats to the Amazon CEO and Amazon. I watched their presentation and they seem just like Google.
Their philosophy pretty much is that they only make money if you use their services and not just when you buy their products.

I don't understand some people claims that nexus 7 will cannibalize and beat kindle, which is not true at all... Consider the Amazon has most satisfied customers among the android maker...

Why so little market share for the nexus 7 ? I think its the best . Stupid consumers everywhere

i think amamzon should make an android base OS not just costumize one.. just like aliyun OS, that would be nice, and they also could name their OS versions!

That's interesting...considering most android fans will say that the Nexus 7/10 is the best tablet or a variation of a Samsung tablet. Seems like the Kindle is carrying the torch & by quite an amazing lead.
