The iPad now counts for 97% of all US Tablet Traffic Online

According to recent study taken by comscore’s new Device Essentials traffic-tracking service, the iPad now holds a comandable lead (at least in terms of online traffic) in the United States. According to the table above by comscore, the iPad (1 and 2) online traffic now counts for around 97% of the traffic, pretty much saying that either people don’t use their non-iPad’s online, or other tablet makers have failed to sell many tablets at all. So in basic words, the iPad is basically running the tablet market.

It’s also interesting to note that overseas, the tablet market holds a commendably huge lead as well, with 89% of internet usage from tablets comes from an iPad, which is good news for the Apple Juggernaut, as they have clearly cemented their place in the market as clear leaders. The good news for other manufacturers is that the tablet market isn’t even 2 years old yet, so there is plenty of time to create a great tablet, although we hope to see some soon, rather than later. Of course, for the iPad, hitting the shelves first was always a big advantage, but they took advantage of it and came out swinging.  As for the other manufacturers, the time is right to create your latest masterpiece!
