Impressive figures for iPad web traffic in its early days



It has been just a couple of weeks since the launch of iPad and it has already made its mark according to netmarketshare . iPad averaged about 0.03 percent of all the Web traffic in the first 10 days after its launch which is nearly same as the traffic of BlackBerry devices whose share is 0.04 between these 10 days. While Android devices have 0.07 percent share of the entire web.

Apple’s other two mobile devices had very impressive numbers as iPhone has 0.51 and iPod touch has 0.11 percent market share. The figures for the iPad will definitely increase because currently it is only available for U.S. customers and also its 3G version is still not available for U.S. citizens. In May, iPad will be also available internationally and this would surely multiply its percentage.


We should also remember the iPad is not replacing mobile devices instead it would replace netbooks which Steve Jobs had mentioned in his keynote for iPad that it is a device between a Macbook and iPhone. So, in some years we may see that iPad and other Tablet devices would cross the web traffic percentage of netbooks.
