New iPad Already Accounts For 6% Of All iPad TrafficBy: Shaylin Clark - March 22, 2012
When Apple’s latest iPad hit stores last week we told you about a new tool from Chitika that would allow you to track the adoption of the iPad in the U.S. in real-time. At the time that article was written, the new iPad already accounted for nearly 2% of all iPad web traffic in the U.S.
In the week since the new iPad was released to the public, adoption of the tablet appears to have accelerated. The latest data from Chitika shows that as of now, less than a week since the iPad’s release, it already accounts for almost 6.5% of all iPad traffic, based on data collected in the last 24 hours.
Chitika also examines the adoption rate of the new iPad by state. Though the data fluctuates regularly, at present the rate of adoption is highest in California, Nevada, and Connecticut. New York was in the top three earlier this week, but has fallen somewhat.
Chitika’s data on the adoption of the new iPad can be seen here. The data is constantly changing as more iPads are sold, so the new iPad’s adoption rate by state and its share of overall iPad web traffic is likely to change in the near future.
