    This goes to show how the iPad was received by the majority of people. What I find particularly interesting is the fact that the much hyped Android has less browser usage than the iPad.
    Having said that, I don't know how Net Applications measures Android browser share. Are they counting all browsers available on the platform?

    I'm not sure I believe it.

    Doesn't seem to tell you what the sample is, how the data was collected or anything really.

    Clicks or it aint real.

    Well, I think we should believe it. These reports are the industry standard and the company has the acceptance of the whole industry.

    Still, I do agree with Shoesy. I am not disputing their findings, but unless they disclose the method and the sample size that the data is based on, I will not put too much credence to their findings.

    For my aged eyes, ipad browsing is a joy whereas with iphone, it feels like my eyes are popping out after a few minutes.

    Never planned on it, but after using the ipad for awhile.. I sold the droid and went back to a standard phone for texting/calling.. I have no use for a smartphone now.

    But why would anyone want to use an iPad it's just a giant iPod touch.




    note: the above post contained sarcasm.

    So based on the stats posted
    ipad 0.17% of web traffic
    android 0.14%
    ipod touch at 0.12%

    Are we really talking about a combined half of a percentage here.

    The stats are also an estimate derived from netmarketshares "partners" which is only 160 million users a month. The point being that the majority of sites are mostly flash laden and aren't ideal to be viewed on a mobile browser.
