Amazon's Kindle Fire Tops All Android Tablets
Amazon's Jeff Bezos must be happy to hear and read the latest report that their product Kindle Fire is doing very well both in sales and popularity with consumers.
According to a report, The Kindle Fire has grabbed 54.4 percent of market share of all Android tablet sales in the United States.
Kindle Fire is also arguably one of the very few tablets so far that has become a big and real threat to Apple with their iPads in terms of the sales and mass popularity.
But what makes Kindle Fire so prominent and dominant as an Android tablet? Well, first off, the tablet is backed by retail giant Amazon with millions of customers nationwide. The Kindle Fire is also tapping into the company's vast ecosystem that includes its own brand and services like the Kindle Reader, Amazon Cloud Player, Web, movies, games, and its very own app store which hosts a huge number of Android apps.
The Kindle Fire is also very competitive on its hardware and software features. It has an Android 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP chip, 7-inch screen display with 1024 x 600 pixels resolution, 512 MB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Wi-Fi, USB, and 8 hours of battery life.
Overall, the key factors driving many people to like and buy the device may well be its low price, the popularity of the Kindle brand, and the strength of the Amazon ecosystem. Does Apple need to worry now about Amazon's ever-growing popularity in the tablet category? We'll just have to wait and see.
