iPad Sales Continue Growing, Own Tablet Marketshare
It seems apparent just how big the iPad has become, but it’s the numbers that really paint the full story of just how much dominance and influence it has in the modern world. While the iPad has sold impressively in the past and has dominated a huge part of the market, its growth continues to be astonishing.
When taking the stage at today’s Apple keynote event, Apple CEO Tim Cook was quick to enthusiastically jump into sales figures. From the period of time during April and June, Apple boasts 17 million iPad sales. He backs that up with a more impressive figure, “We sold more iPads than any PC manufacturer sold of their entire PC line. Yes we are in a post-PC world.”
Considering the amount of tablets available today, iPad marketshare should be faltering but it is quite the contrary. Coming up from its 62% marketshare last year, Apple has a 68% share with just one tablet on the market.
Apparently, web browsing is not as big of a deal to Android tablet owners as 91% of all tablet web traffic comes from the iPad! Tim remarks, “I don’t know what these other tablets are doing! They must be in warehouses, or store shelves, or maybe in people’s bottom drawer.”
The vast majority of Fortune 500 companies have either deployed iPad for in-field usage or are testing it, many of which with their own custom apps.
Even without a budget-priced model, iPad continues its spiral of growth.
