    Apple sold 9.2 million iPads in the June quarter and Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer noted Apple is selling "every iPad we can make."

    In contrast, Motorola Mobility shipped (not necessarily sold) 440,000 in the just ended quarter, and expects to sell 1.3 to 1.5 million tablets this year.

    As Dan Frommer points out, Apple sells 1.5 million iPads every two weeks.

    Is this really surprising?

    It's interesting how Google is unable to translate their smartphone share into tablet share.

    I know the site frowns on one-word (my new love of hyphenated words, just like MR) replies but it's the most appropriate word.

    Duh!

    :D

    I think we all know it is going to be Android tablets as a whole versus the iPad...as sad as that sounds.

    I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it's a really beautiful device. Suits my needs well and is really up there compared with the iPad, even though some of you won't agree! :p

    If there is another iPad released this year I think it will be a lower end model with a low price point to entice a larger audience.

    I saw a commercial on TV this morning for some tablet. At the end, it said something like "the first company to get the tablet right". Um, maybe the company that sells millions and millions of tablets got it right. :)

    Perspective:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/2011/jul/06/ipad-browsing-web-domination-android

    In other words, for every thousand page views by a tablet, 965 would come from an iPad, 19 from a Galaxy Tab, 12 from a Xoom and 3 from a PlayBook. (In market share terms, that would show up as Android having a 3 percent share.)

    With 25m iPads sold, that would imply (on a like-for-like basis) that there are something like half a million Galaxy Tabs in use, and 325,000 Xooms.

    Isnt the galaxy tab roughly the same price as the iPad? How come you chose it?

    It is the same price, actually. I chose it because I have always had Android phones so it made sense since I am in their ecosystem. I just prefer it over iOS.

    ‘You’ll Rule the World’
    Alan Kay, regarding his reaction to the iPhone in January 2007:


    When the Mac first came out, Newsweek asked me what I [thought] of it. I said: Well, it’s the first personal computer worth criticizing. So at the end of the presentation, Steve came up to me and said: Is the iPhone worth criticizing? And I said: Make the screen five inches by eight inches, and you’ll rule the world.

    It’s Droid-speak for ‘Soon’.

    Worthless links.

    We've proven many times around here that web browsing statistics bear little or no relationship to actual sales of any item.

    For example: using such numbers, we would conclude that there are as many iPads out there as all the iPhones and iPod touches combined.

    The reality is far, far different. While iPads account for 50% of all iOS browsing, they are only 1/8 of all iOS sales.

    The figures '1.5m tablets sold / week' and '9.2m tablets sold last quarter' just don't add up...

    In any case, it is really surprising that all iOS tablets are outselling just one Android tablet? And to play devil's advocate, you have to consider that Android tablets are available in far fewer countries...

    But the numbers in the article are comparing tablets to tablets. I think the comparison is legitimate, and your example doesn't apply.

    Edit: and I mean this study:

    While not all, but a fairly good number of people settled for a Droid or got it free and didn't care.

    It doesn't seem to be killer feature. ;)

    Flash is no longer a factor. A flash-less iPad is setting the standard and dominating, while a Flash-less iPhone on its own carries 28% share, while a Flash-less iOS the dominant mobile OS.

    It's almost as if Flash was always a non-factor. In fact, it always *was* a non-factor.
