The Amazon Kindle Fire tablet has conquered over half of the Android market, according to new data collected by the research firm known as ComScore.
The wildly popular tablet accounts for 54.4 percent of the total Android market as of the end of this month.
The Kindle Fire has only been available for six months and it has already blown past high-end Android tablets such as Samsung's Galaxy Tab series that owns 15.4 percent of the market.
Motorola's XOOM line and the ASUS Transformer line together only account for about 14 percent of the Android market.
Amazon offered a cheap alternative to those looking for a tablet. Apple opened up the tablet market by releasing its iPad back in 2010, but the device was not cost effective. However, Apple products seem to sell despite their price tags. The company did not see any real competition until the end of last year when Amazon launched the cost effective Kindle Fire tablet.
The device retails at just $199, while the cheapest version of the iPad costs around $399.
