Amazon's Kindle Fire has quickly become the dominant Android tablet on the market, according to analysts.
Research firm Comscore said that the Kindle Fire claimed a 54.4 per cent share of the February Android sales in the US.
That is up significantly from the 29.4 per cent share of the market Amazon claimed just two months prior.
The Kindle Fire's gain came largely at the expense of the Samsung Galaxy Tab line.
Samsung's tablet family saw its 23.8 per cent share of December sales shrink to 15.4 per cent by February.
Motorola's Xoom tablets' market share also fell off over the period from 11.8 per cent to just 7 per cent of all sales in February.
While the Kindle Fire has shot up the charts in terms of market share, the tablet is not translating the higher sales into a larger presence on the web. Researchers found that users who run 7in tablets spend far less time browsing that those who use devices with larger screens.
On average, the study found that 7in tablets averaged around 90 page views per user over the month of February. Users who ran 10in tablets, however, averaged some 125 page views per month, roughly 39 per cent higher than 7in models.
Researchers believe that the drop-off from screen size indicates that many websites do not make adjustments for smaller form-factors.
Comscore noted that with the growing sales for the smaller tablets, webmasters would be wise to repackage their content and advertising to accomodate the smaller screens.
