Which Google Inc (GOOG) Android Tablets are Showing the Most Promise?

It is impossible to know if Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android tablets will ever be able to compete for the top spot in the market with the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad lineup. That being said, these tablets are beginning to pick up steam.

Which Google Inc (GOOG) Android Tablets are Showing the Most Promise?

At the end of July, Google released its second Nexus 7 branded tablet, produced alongside Asus. This tablet is powered by the company’s most recent Android operating system, version 4.3.

Since 2012, Nexus tablets have become among the most popular of those running the Android OS.

Chitika Insights recently took a closer look at how popular these tablets have become, while also focusing on the growth of both  Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD devices.


What does Chitika think about Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android Tablets?


In terms of Android tablet based web traffic, the research company found that “usage rates of Nexus 7 tablets has largely remained the same in the lead up to the device’s launch and following the new Nexus 7’s release in the United States.”

On the other side of things, Kindle Fire usage has experienced a nice increase thanks to Amazon offering a variety of discounts on the tablet throughout the month of August.

The more you dig into the data provided by Chitika, the easier it is to see that the Kindle Fire is the top dog in terms of browsing activity in the United States. With that in mind, its monthly average of 40.7 percent is only one point higher than what the company found in June 2013.

What about the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Nexus 7? For now, it is difficult to say how well this model is going to perform since it just hit the market. We will have to wait several months to get a better idea of how it stacks up against the industry as a whole, as well as the Kindle Fire.

It is easy to think about the tablet market and have one thing on your mind: the Apple iPad. While this device from Cupertino is the leader of the pack, don’t overlook the push being made by Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android tablets. As you can see, the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 are progressing nicely.

These hedge fund managers are heavily invested in Google, partly because of the company’s success with its Android operating system: Robert Karr, Daniel Benton, Sandy Nairn, Gregory Bylinsky, and Christopher Hansen.
