Now, of course it is definitely possible that there are many Android tablet owners who don't use their device for Web browsing. Those numbers won't capture people who only downloadapps or play music or watch videos.
But no matter how you slice it, it's a pretty crazy statistic. Right now the answer to Amazon's tablet has pretty much been that the Kindle Fire is a good base-level, inexpensive way to get into the tablet world, but if you want something with more power, the other manufacturers want you to head to their side.
But it appears that the only manufacturer that those consumers are choosing en masse is Apple. In other words, if you want a super-powered tablet, you'll get an iPad. Otherwise, you'll get a Kindle Fire.
Moving down the list, Samsung was second on Comscore's list, with its Android tablets taking a combined 15% of all Android tablet Web activity. That includes all the variations of the Galaxy Tab, compared to just one Kindle Fire.
It is believed, however, that Amazon is very interested in expanding that product line. Reports have surfaced that a 10-inch Kindle Fire may be in the works, which could potentially be a true competitor to the iPad.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
