We come across reports of the Kindle Fire and the Nexus range of tablets slowly gaining prominence with an ever increasing sales figure. However, if that led anyone to believe the above translates to the iPad losing its hold on the market, they are in for a pleasant surprise. Recent revelations by the mobile ad company Chitika has singled out the iPad as the biggest contributor to tablet web traffic. Apple tablets alone are responsible for 87 percent of tablet web surfing. The figure though marks a decrease of 1 percent over the same for the month of November.
Coming to its competitors, while the Kindle Fire, the Nexus 7, or the Galaxy Tab have miniscule figures for their corresponding tablet web surfing, they have shown impressive growth in recent times. For instance, the Kindle Fire made for 4.25 percent of tablet web traffic, which is an improvement of 20 percent for the unit.
Similarly, the Samsung Galaxy Tab range achieved 2.65 percent increase in tablet web traffic, though the Nexus tablets made a marginal improvement in tablet web traffic, growing from 0.91 percent to 1.06 percent.
So while it’s evident the Kindle Fire has made significant inroads in the tablet sphere, all the others including Amazon still have a daunting task ahead as they try to intimidate the iPad.
