The month of January has been forgettable for Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock, which fell 14.41 percent over the period, but the company’s tablets seem to have fared much better. The iPad accounted for more than 80 percent of active users in the market in the month, even though Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Kindle Fire and other Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android tablets saw continued growth.

According to latest data from ad network Chitika, Apple’s iPads accounted for 81 percent of tablet web traffic in North America to the Kindle Fire’s 7.78 percent and the Samsung (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy line’s 3.9 percent. However, while Apple’s share fell from 87 percent in December, Amazon’s share grew from 4.25 percent for December and more than doubled from 3.57 percent in November. The share of the Galaxy line of tablets was up from 2.65 percent in December.
