Apple’s new iPad already accounts for 10% of all iPad traffic after only three weeks

“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.”

  1. The only criticism I have for the new iPad are the beveled buttons which are harder to get to when in a full case than with my iPad 1. Otherwise, what’s not to absolutely love?

  2. But the trouble is that it’s 4G supports only US and Canadian frequencies! 🙁
    EU and many other countries have standardized different frequencies. Apple should have supported all common frequencies to achieve worldwide success. It’s unbelievable that their engineers didn’t know this!
