There have been a couple very interesting reports recently regarding mobile web browsing. And, looking through the stats, one can’t help but notice that Apple’s iPad keeps cropping up.
Apple launched the original iPad a little over a year ago, and already it’s gained an enormous amount of the tablet market. In fact, according to NetMarketShare, the iPad accounts for 1% of global web browsing. That may not sound like a lot, but 1% of the world’s Internet-browsing gadgets is pretty huge.
What’s more, The Register is reporting that the iPad accounts for 2.1% of web browsing here in the US.
Furthermore, eliminating everything except tablets from the equation, the iPad boasts a whopping 97% of all web traffic. And I can see why. Surfing the web on my iPad really is a great experience. Yes, there are certain things Apple could do better, but there are also many things that the company is doing pretty well.
