iPads Accounted for 84.3% of All Tablet-Based Traffic

07.30.13

As of June, 2013 the iPad is the dominant tablet in the US for Internet traffic which prompted Apple’s CEO to ask "I don’t know what" other tablets are "being used for." Computerworld reported that Tim Cook (Apple CEO) made the following comments:

"In terms of how other people are doing, I don’t know," said Cook when asked whether the iPad’s 14% sales plunge stemmed from an industry-wide trend.

"What I can tell you is the most recent data I have gotten, which actually just came out, I believe, this morning, is that the iPad Web share data shows that through the quarter we accelerated further and … now iPad accounts for 84% of the Web traffic from tablets.

Cook was referring to a report from Chitika which included the following:

iPads accounted for 84.3% of all tablet-based traffic to its ads in the U.S. and Canada between June 15 and June 21. The nearest competitors, Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Samsung’s Galaxy line, were credited with shares of just 5.7% and 4.2%, respectively.

Clearly this is an important message about the iPad’s market penetration and may give us a glimpse of the future.

Ironically this blog was written on my iPad!

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
