Amazon's Kindle Fire may have launched to a small reception, but that has turned into a crowd of clapping and awe. According to data supplied by Flurry Analytics, Kindle Fire has taken a fair amount of market share in just three months.
With data measured in application settings on Android from November 2011 to January 2012, Kindle Fire went from a 3-percent market share to a very nice 36-percent. To compare, Samsung's already-established Galaxy Tab that has been on sale for more than two years, dropped from 64-percent to 32-percent market share.
4 million Kindle Fires were sold in December alone, according to Amazon. These sales were enough to give the tablet nearly one third of the Android tablet market. Kindle Fire does have a $199 price, which would help it, well, quite a bit. Most of the other tablets start at $350, which would explain why people are jumping on to the Fire.
