Amazon's Kindle Fire Claims 5 Percent of Tablet Market - John Paczkowski - News - AllThingsD

tbd how this will change with Google Nexus 7 in the picture, and new Kindle devices expected soon
"Amazon shipped 1.2 million Kindle Fires in the second quarter of 2012, according to IDC, enough to give it a 5 percent market share. But that’s about half the 9.6 percent share captured by Samsung in the same period, and a pittance compared to the 68.2 percent owned by Apple. So, while the Fire clearly has picked up some traction, it’s obviously struggling to gain footing in a tablet market that’s more aptly described as an iPad market."
