I honestly have been waiting for this data to come out. I knew it was out there. I knew it was exactly what I imagined and now I am justified when I see a tablet ad on tv and they are claiming to be defining the tablet genre, or redefining it. Or especially when they claim that someone should look out because they are better....etc etc
And i think to myself who are they kidding? I don't think Apple is a god but I certainly know that they have cornered the tablet market. They have defined the market in fact. They certainly are not threatened by ....you. You should be just building yourself up. Not talking trash to the consumer public. Sure some folks are gonna buy something other then an iPad. Sure I get that. But look at the data.....go ahead I will wait.
Now that you have looked. Its not close. Its not coke and pepsi out there. Its Apple. And if you want to take a chance with several hundred dollars....
Anyway, I'm all fired up mostly because I know someone I know who isn't a techy is going to buy some other device and when I ask them why they bought it they are gonna say "Dan, they are all the same"
It's no secret that the iPad commands a serious lead in the battle for tablet mindshare, but comScore's new Device Essentials traffic-tracking service shows just how much that translates into market dominance. According to the web monitoring company, the iPad and its successor account for 89 percent of tablet internet use globally, and 97 percent here in the US. Of course, the slate segment is still young and accounts for only a tiny percentage of total traffic. And, it's worth noting, the iPad has a significant advantage in being the first to hit shelves.
