Royal Pingdom’s recent study shows iPad leading the tablet market

by Gavril Mankoo

We’ve seen the rise and surge of tablets in the markets today with just about every firm developing its own. A recent report from the Royal Pingdom now made us believe that Apple still rules the tablet market today with the iPad and the iPad 2. The report claims that 87.6% of global web traffic for tablets is made up of iPad users alone! And that’s a pretty astounding figure, given that companies like Samsung, HTC, Motorola and the likes have been hell-bent on developing state of the art Android tablets lately. Android users however make up a measly 10.9% of the global tablet web traffic, followed by webOS and Blackberry OS users, each at 0.7%. Today, Apple has sold a reported 40 million iPad units and these figures pretty much show who’s boss of the tablet trade.
