Kindle Fire HD is bad for Android, worse for iPad

Shameem Ahmed 7 September 2012 0

Google is in a tough spot. Apple suddenly looks like an ally now that Amazon has unveiled Kindle Fire HD. Both companies stand to lose big time should the tablet achieve any meaningful sales success. Google Play doesn’t offer strong enough ecosystem to battle with either iPad or Kindle Fire, but Amazon’s tablet is more likely to scorch Android’s earth. Amazon’s vertical integration — store, software and services — is tight, as good as Apple’s and in many respects superior. No matter which wins, Android loses.
