Amazon’s Appstore Suggests the Fire Is Blowing Up | MIT Technology Review

Tangentially, the BW Tim Cook article includes an MP3 market share chart indicating Amazon has 16% share, second only to Apple's 64%
"But the fact that the application store is growing so rapidly is rather interesting. There seems to be a general sense in the marketplace that because the App Store comes bundled in the iPad and iPhone, and the Google Play store is readily available on Android products, Amazon’s Appstore, which comes bundled in just a handful of devices, should be ignored.
But if Amazon’s figures are to be believed, that’s no longer the smart move. Amazon has found a way, despite all of the odds, to carve out a portion of the application market for itself. Developers are increasingly finding that the company’s store is worth trying out, and as more Kindle Fires are sold, Amazon customers are finding things to like, as well."
