According to the website Chitika owned by a company that operates in the web advertising market, the new iPad is already making its mark on Internet traffic. Specifically, a week after its launch in the United States, it already accounts for 7% of web traffic from Apple tablets.
Three days ago this small portion was around 5% so you can see that it is growing at a good rate.
These figures are not too surprising, considering that the first and second generation iPads account for the remaining 93% of this study. However, keep in mind that it’s only been on sale for 7 days in the United States, so there aren’t many people who can use it intensively right now.
Previous models have been on the market for one and two years, so taking a chunk out of your total Internet connections is no easy task. In addition, the new iPad is going to sell like hot cakes in the next few months, so that percentage will probably grow rapidly to over 50% of the cake.
Do you need a faster processor like the A5X and a Retina Display to enjoy the Internet more and better? That’s a good question. For now, we’ll leave you with an updated graph showing the last 24 hours of browsing in the U.S. since the three generations of iPad.
We would not be surprised if within a month this portion grew to 15 or 20%.
