A report from Localytics, the software company that offers mobile app analytics platform, claimed that the new iPad users exceeded the number of the iPad 2 users in just two months since the release of the latest model. Moreover, the third-generation iPad currently reached 50 % than the launch week share.
Anyway, the iPad 2 remains the most used of Apple’s iPad models, thus, it will take a while for the new tablet to reach the scores of its predecessor, though it is successfully selling.
Report from Gartner showed that iOS dominates the media tablet market. Though the release of Window 8 may interfere with the iPad selling, iOS is still expected to account for 61.4% of worldwide tablet sales to end users in 2012.
“Despite PC vendors and phone manufacturers wanting a piece of the pie and launching themselves into the media tablet market, so far, we have seen very limited success outside of Apple with its iPad,” said Carolina Milanesi, research vice president at Gartner.
