Due to Amazon’s success in the tablet space, Google is on the verge of launching a competing 7-inch tablet of its own with the help of Asus. The Google Nexus Tablet is expected to make inroads in 2012, but with Amazon making plans to launch multiple devices, Windows 8 tablets gearing up for launch later in 2012, and the rumored Apple iPad Mini, Google is in a bit of a predicament.
Amazon managed to sell 3.48 million of the Kindle Fire during the 4th quarter of 2011. No other Android tablet even came close to those numbers. Amazon is now sitting with 14% market share, a far cry from Apple, but still enough to make Google shake in its boots.
