Despite Apple’s early lead in the space, Android could soon overtake iPads as the world’s top tablet platform. That’s according to new research from app analytics firm Localytics,
which attributes the change mostly to U.S. consumers, and U.S. Kindle Fire and Kindle HD users in particular. “The U.S. is Amazon’s first and main market for the Kindle Fire, with Amazon
only starting to roll out the tablets to other markets towards the end of 2012,” TechCrunch reports.
