“The release of the iPad three years ago has had a brutal impact on conventional PC sales, but new data on tablet use shows that Apple is not just fending off tablet competitors, it’s advancing on them,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.
“Apple’s iPads now account for 81.9 percent of U.S. and Canadian tablet web traffic, according to a report by online advertiser Chitika,” Dilger reports. “Last month, Chitika reported a slight monthly decline of half of one percentage point, from 81 percent to 80.5, in the iPad’s web traffic share.”
Dilger reports, “Tablet use by Amazon, Samsung, Google and Microsoft are all essentially flat or slightly lower. Apple increased its iPad lead by more than the Surface, Xoom, Nexus, Kindle Fire and all of Samsung’s Galaxy tablets combined. Microsoft’s beleaguered Surface is being used at the same rate as Motorola’s failed Xoom. Together, the two share less than one percentage point.”
