While finishing my daily read over at As the Apple Turns, I noticed an interesting statistic in the third scene of today's episode: less than 100,000 tablet PCs have shipped since the launch in November. Humorists as the writers are, the AtAT staff pointed out that Apple outsold that number in PowerMacs shipped in one quarter alone; and those are PMG4s, not PMG5s. It's not clear from the linked article over at MacUser (FRRYYY, maybe) whether the "less than 100,000" figure refers to European shipments or worldwide shipments, but I believe it's the latter, since later on in the article it quotes another statistic: shipments to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa have totaled only 26,920 units. I think this is the first pretty good evidence that the Tablet PC is pretty much just hype. I never did understand it, anyway.
