  • Amazon Kindle Fire Sales Slump As Apple Boosts Tablet Share-Bloomberg 1 comment
    May 3, 2012 9:19 PM | about stocks: AMZN, AAPL

    Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) share of the tablet market dipped to 4% from 17% in the first quarter, while Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) market share increased to 55%. This really highlights the extraordinary strength of Apple and their ability consistently garner sales at a level that crushes the competition. The Kindle is a wonderful product at a cheaper price point but clearly the Apple remains dominant in their table business, with no close competition within sight.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Yep and Microsoft is throwing good money after the bad at Barnes and Noble's Nook. Nook and Kindle compete with each other via lower price point, and anyone who took a marketing course knows that this will only end in the demise of both. Better to differentiate like iPad is doing.
