Apple's iPad Continues to Crush all Android Tablets Combined with 77% of Web Traffic in the US and Canada
Once again Chitika Insights latest web traffic stats for tablets in the US and Canadian markets has rolled out and Apple has crushed their Android competitors handily. Chitika notes that "the proverbial elephant in the room is iPad usage share, which still stands at over 77% of all U.S. and Canadian tablet-based Web traffic."
Chitika noted that Apple's lead is only down a few percentage points year-over-year, but the current share is very notable in the context of the North American tablet market. While it is uncertain if Apple can reverse the tide and grow its domestic tablet usage share in the coming months, it is clear that iPad users remain the most active aggregate tablet user base by a wide margin, with that likely to remain the case for the foreseeable future.
The new number two player, Samsung, has grown significantly over the past year, states Chitika. Then again, that's if you consider 4.7% to 8.3% anything to sing about.
To determine the distribution of Web usage among leading tablet devices for early April 2014, Chitika Insights sampled tens of millions of U.S. and Canadian tablet-based online ad impressions running through the Chitika Ad Network. The data used to compile current usage share were drawn across the time range of April 1 through 7, 2014.
Lastly, if you happen to like statistics, J.D. Power published a new report today noting that "Apple Smartphone Devices Rank Highest among Tier 1 Wireless Carriers." While Apple's ratings were the highest with AT&T and Verizon, over at Sprint and T-Mobile the race between Apple and Samsung was a lot closer. Yet all in all, it was another sweep for Apple.
