25 AprThe iPad leads the tablet revolution – stunning numbers for Q2 2012
The surprise was the iPad numbers. Almost 12 million iPads were sold during the quarter, a 150% increase over the same quarter last year.
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook quote offers insight on the iPad’s stellar sales:
Just two years after we shipped the initial iPad, we sold 67 million. It took us 24 years to sell that many Macs, and five years for that many iPods, and over three years for that many iPhones.
This shows just how fast the tablet market is growing. Mr. Cook previously stated he believed the tablet market will eventually exceed the PC market.
