    Apple’s new iPad has been available for a week now, and already the tablet accounts for 1 and 15 (6.6%) of all iPads.

    Chitka announced today that data culled from their ad-serving network over the past 24 hours shows the new iPad generates 6.6% of all iPad traffic going through the company’s servers. Obviously the iPad and iPad 2 were responsible for the remaining traffic...

    As with any new product release the new iPad’s share of Chitka and presumably other ad-serving networks, is increasing. Although, the figures could be slightly skewed because of new device owners’ propensity to use their new toys until passing out. But, the number should continue to steadily grow as Apple adds to the 3 million units sold during the opening weekend. Today marked the launch of the iPad in 25 more markets including Australia, Spain, Poland, Finland, and the Netherlands.

    The new iPad is currently available in 35 countries which means Apple has about 160 more countries to go until the iPads become self-aware and take over the world.

    Actually it's the same toy......just with a sexier screen and apparently MORE problems. Sure would like to see a return rate on this device.

    I wouldn't be that critical, but one does have to question stats coming from an advertising firm.

    These numbers are actually shockingly low to me. "Already accounts for 6%"... how many people dropped their old iPads for the new one, or are at least using the new one more than they are the old one? Everyone I know, with the exception of one person, who bought the new iPad already had one.

    Sorry you had a bad day.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    Your trolling yourself by saying that.


    I think every new device try came out with so far had problems at first, but they seem to correct it with iOS updates.
