According to the Chitika Ad Network, Apple’s iPad controlled a whopping 81.9% of the tablet web traffic in the first quarter of 2013 in the US and Canada. This is up slightly – about 1.4 percent – month-over-month, which marks the first month-on-month increase in iPad web traffic since December of 2012. As far as the reason for this increase, Chitika claims the tablet owes the jump to sales of refurbished fourth-gen iPads and discounted iPad mini starting in mid-March.
Coming in a distant second place with 7.1 percent of web traffic is the Android tablet category, but that’s only because Amazon’s Kindle Fire was grouped into that category. Bringing up the rear were Samsung’s Galaxy tablets with 4.3 percent, and Google’s Nexus tablet tablets with 1.7 percent. The Microsoft Surface barely pulled in 0.4 percent of tablet traffic, which is surprisingly low.
