Google: Android tablets haven’t ‘completely flopped’ - Android app article - Phil Hornshaw | Appolicious ™ Android App Directory

Likely to be at least one mainstream Android tablet success…

Still, 6 million tablets should at least be encouraging, and there are more Android tablets on the horizon that could cause a splash in the market. Google probably isn’t thrilled about possible Amazon success, given what a big competitor the online retailer has become, but Amazon’s upcoming Kindle Fire might have the potential to upgrade the tablet market numbers a bit. The Android-running Fire has Amazon’s Kindle brand to lean on, which gives it some recognition and reliability, and it’s a smaller tablet that doesn’t try to be the iPad, which is also a good way to distinguish a product in a market full of imitators. Plus, there’s the Kindle Fire’s price point of $199 which will undoubtedly entice quite a few buyers who’d rather not play in Apple’s walled garden.
