Though Apple's iPad sales shrank, Amazon's Kindle Fire took 70% nosedive last quarter (AppleInsider)

Another leading indicator of a phabulous future (i.e., super-sized smartphones displacing non-giant-form-factor tablets)? Amazon will at least continue to dominate the e-ink market...

"The worst, however, was seen by Amazon, whose Kindle Fire lineup saw a freefall of 69.9 percent in shipments, according to IDC. Amazon is estimated to have shipped just 1.7 million tablets in the quarter, good for a 2.3 percent market share.

Though the market is seeing sales decline, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has said he remains bullish on the future of tablets. In his company's quarterly earnings call last week, Cook said he sees great potential in the company's upcoming hardware pipeline."
