iPad continues to make huge majority of tablet Web traffic

John Koetsier, VentureBeat:

“For every 100 iPad impressions, other tablets have 14.75,” Gabe Donnini, Chitika’s data solutions engineer, said today. “Eighty-seven percent of the tablet web traffic in North America is generated by iPad.”

Chitka’s been tracking this stuff for a while, and while the number’s down month over month (above 88 percent for November, to 87 percent for December), it shows that iPad owners continue to use their devices fundamentally differently than Android tablet owners do.

    Funny how the open source fanatics still insist that Apple is killing “the open web” by forcing people to use apps, when clearly iPad users are using the web far more than other tablet users.

      One of the strangest things with Android is how bad it is at Web browsing, given the Google heritage. It’s counter-intuitive, but Apple not only has the only native C/C++ app platform on mobile, they also have the best HTML5 Web app platform. Of course that is because Apple gets paid whether you buy an iPad for native apps, the Web, or a mixture of both.

    iPad is still the king of tablets. The iPhone is, according to some reports, making huge gains in market share. Yet Wall Street and the tech media in general are still doom and gloom about Apple. When is this going to stop?

    The Chinese are working through their freaking New Year holiday to keep up with Apple demand, yet this company is being punished in the media like it’s going out of business. I don’t get it. So frustrating following Apple in the news or the stock market.

      tell me about it. Be patient for their Q1 results. It will be a blowout.

    have you read the articles about how the analysts think that the Kindle Fire is underselling projections, but this is a good thing for Amazon because they lose less money?
