“In its first 10 days, Apple’s iPad has captured almost as much online usage share as the BlackBerry or Google’s Android operating system, a Web metrics firm said,” Gregg Keizer reports for IDG News Service.
“According to data from Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based NetApplications.com, the iPad’s share has averaged 0.03% since April 3, the day Apple started selling the media tablet,” Keizer reports. “Research In Motion’s BlackBerry, for example, had a usage share of 0.04% for the month of March. Android, meanwhile, accounted for the same figure, split evenly between Android 1.5 and Android 1.6, NetApplications said.”
Keizer reports, “But the iPad can’t hold a candle to Apple’s older mobile siblings. By NetApplications’ count, Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch devices have a combined share of 0.6%, about 20 times larger than the iPad’s.”
