No it didn't. It got crushed by the iPad. If you mean it outpaced every other tablet in the small portion of the market occupied by Android . . . it also didn't do that since Amazon and Samsung basically tied over Christmas. The Fire had a lot of media hype but didn't actually do all that well in the market because it was a pretty weak product.

Again, you're really misunderstanding the lesion of the Fire. Its that people want a cheap tablet, but they want a quality tablet more. The Fire had a crappy UI and really sluggish performance. It sold well based on its price, but most people still preferred to spend more for something better, and they did just that.
