Amazon’s Kindle Fire is the second most popular tablet after the iPad and will ship 3.9 million units in the last quarter of this year, projects research firm iHS iSuppli.
Keep in mind that this is tablet is based off the same hardware specs as the Playbook — the same Playbook that RIM failed to sell even a quarter that amount of.
That’s why software is so important — and I guess having a native email client. ((Idiots.))
