comScore: Kindle Fire dominates Android tablet market, had nearly 55 percent share in Feb.

Amazon’s Kindle Fire has only been available since mid-November, scarcely more than five months, but in its brief time on the market, it’s managed to dominate its Android competition. According to market researchers comScore, as of February, Amazon’s 7-inch tablet had a commanding 54.4 share of the Android tablet market in the U.S., far outpacing Samsung’s next-place Galaxy Tab line, which had a measly 15.4 percent share. To give you an idea of the Fire’s rapid adoption, comScore estimates it had a 41.8 percent market share in January, and a 29.4 percent share in December, its first full month on the market. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab family, on the other hand, saw its market share decline from 23.8 percent in December and 19.1 percent in January.
