It might not be an iPad killer, but Amazon’s Kindle Fire is having an impact on the tablet market.
In fact, it might already be the most popular Android tablet available in the U.S. market, according to data from Flurry. The in-app analytics firm said the Fire accounted for 35.7 percent of app-usage sessions in January, just two months after its launch, beating out the Samsung Galaxy Tab from which 35.6 percent of sessions originated. In November, the Fire accounted for 3 percent of sessions, and the Galaxy Tab: 63 percent.
Though the data doesn’t directly imply there are now more Fires than Galaxy Tabs out in the wild, it at least suggests more app content is being consumed through them. And that’s important, because more developer support means better application content, which in turn translates into consumer demand for the devices.
