Ok, so we all know that iPad kicked some serious tablet ass when it launched a year ago, but did you know that it reached an outrageous $1 billion in sales revenue in only 4 months, making it the fastest selling consumer device ever! And that’s not all……the first generation iPad is responsible for a whole host of crazy gadgetry firsts, like a tablet slashing laptop sales by 50% or even just the pure fact I can use the words “tablet” and “sales” in the same sentence is testament to how much of a game changer the iPad actually was. But just how big was it? Well, this infographic entitled “A brief history of the iPad” snapshots the facts and figures behind the first year of iPad history and sets us up nicely for what is set to be another year of pure iPad carnage with the recent release of the ipad 2……enjoy!
So who’d have thought the majority of iPad users were 40 something guys, who devote a full one in seven days to their shiny new iPads. Or that your twice as likely to catch a guy multi-tasking the hell out of an iPad than a women. Or even that a massive 72% of iPad owners couldn’t care less that it was produced by one of the biggest technology companies in the world, they just liked it’s pretty design!
But what does all of this actually mean? Well, it means that the iPad isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and the recent launch of the iPad 2 is guaranteed to send even more middle aged fellas into a 2 day fiddle frenzy!
It’s a winner alright and I for one absolutely love it! Get involved!
