iPad Increases to 1% of All Web Browsing
On our website here at MyiPadApps.com we’ve seen a surge in browsing from iPad devices. You may be thinking ‘duh’ this is an iPad review site. True, but we’re seeing an uptrend in iPad specific traffic that matches a new report out from The Register, which finds that over one percent of global web browsing comes from the iPad and iPad 2. In the U.S. iPad browsing is even higher at 2.1%.
Here on our iPad review site we’ve seen a remarkable uptick in iPad browser traffic. Just for June alone we saw 32% of our web traffic arrive at our website using the Safari browser on the iPad. This is a 12% increase from the previous month and has been a upward trend since the release of the iPad 2.
Since Apple first launched the iPad in April of 2010, and now with the iPad 2 launch the iPad device has now become a big player in how users browse the world wide web. For all the skeptics who called the iPad an oversize iPod are now waking up to post-pc era that arrived with the iPad tablet. CEO’s and mobile device makers will rise and fall based on pivotal decisions they made 14 months ago when the iPad first went on sale. This trend is actually a paradigm shift and a phenomenon that is only getting stronger as more and more new iPad users join this mobile platform. The fact that 2.1 % of U.S. web-browsing activity is happening in this short of a time is impressive and foretelling.
