U.S. Leaders Global Android Tablet Share, With Amazon Kindle Fire Tablets Leading The Way


Amazon can stake its claim of being the undisputed leader in the Android tablet market share out here in the States. According to a nice report by research firm Localytics, out of all the Android tablets out there in the world, 59% the overall tablets worldwide are based in the U.S.— with an astounding 33% of those tablets being an original Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD, 10% being that of a Nook tablet and 9% being some sort of Samsung Galaxy Tab variant among other things. Even more astounding about this study is that outside of the U.S., Kindle Fire are essentially non-existent as 89% of Amazon’s tablet models are in the States, followed by a much smaller percentage of models being found in Great Britain and an even smaller percentage of Amazon tablet models out in other markets worldwide. This all points out to the fact that the Kindle Fire family of tablets are having a major impact on the overall number of tablets worldwide… even if they’re found mostly in 2 specific markets.

The findings of this study paints an even bigger picture for apps developers and subsequently— owners of an Amazon tablet. What the study implies is that app developers should begin developing apps not only for the Play Store, but also Amazon’s App Store as well as it gives yet another important distribution channel to the masses— resulting in much more exposure of a great brand, game or developer.
