    AppleInsider reports today on new figures released by IDC that show that Apple’s worldwide share of the tablet market has increased from 54.7% in the final quarter of 2011 to 68% in the first quarter of 2012. And it seems that Apple’s gain is Amazon’s loss, with IDC reporting that Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet dropped from a 16.8% market share in the fourth quarter of 2011 to just a 4% share in the first quarter of 2012.

    Samsung also profited from Amazon’s misfortune, retaking the number 2 position in worldwide tablet shipments. Lenovo came in fourth, and Barnes & Noble took the fifth spot with its Nook.
