Fascinating analysis today from Trefis of the sales progress for iPad. 3MM sold. 10MM projected by years end. 30MM projected shortly after. But what’s more interesting, at least to me, is that iPads are outselling MacBooks. Outselling MacBooks. Which means that people who would normally have brought a MacBook for personal computing are making a choice to go iPad. Perhaps.
Or perhaps this means that Apple is further eating into Windows market share with the iPad? Recent reports have Apple owning the high end laptop market (91% of laptops > $1000 are sold by Apple according to this article). So if MacBook owns the $1000+ laptop market and iPad owns the $500 tablet market … where does that leave MS?
Either way, one thing that we can all conclude is that iPads are selling. There are plenty of apps already, but plenty more will surely come to meet up with consumer demand.
