“After a little less than a month on the market, The new iPad has made leaps and bounds into the hands of millions of consumers across the world,” Gabe Donnini reports for Chitika. “[A] market survey coming out of ChangeWave Research reports that 82% of the new iPad users said they were “very satisfied” compared to the 74% that felt similarly about the first and second generation iPads. Success for The new iPad has only been made further evident by official sales figures released by Apple, indicating that the tablet sold three million units across the first four days it was available both online and in stores.”
“Since then, the Chitika Insights iPad Tracker has emerged as one of the only available metrics to track the rate of adoption of the new iPad in real time,” Donnini reports. “After surpassing a 5% adoption rate (relative to all iPads) after only four days on the market, The new iPad has been steadily gaining share on a daily basis… After less than one month, April 8th 2012 marks the first 24 hour period in which The new iPad garnered over a 10% share of the overall iPad market.”
