Apple’s iPad 3 Orders – Will you be Buying One This Year?

Posted on: March 6, 2012

It’s without question that Apple rules the roost when it comes to tablets. The iPad receives more notoriety and more press coverage than any other tablet and will continue to do so. Why? It’s like opening a present on Christmas morning or purchasing a brand new model car. There’s always new bells and whistles, and you feel special when you let everyone on your cyber block know that you own the latest piece of technology.

Back in April 2010, the first iPad sold over 3 million units within 80 days and an overall 14.8 million worldwide that same year. That accounted for roughly 75% of the tablet market in 2010.

The following year when Apple sprouted the iPad 2 in March one analyst predicted that 35 million units would sell.  The prediction was close. Apple sold an estimated 32 million tablets in 2011. And now that the iPad is sold in more than 25 countries worldwide, there’s a good chance everyone’s predictions could all be surpassed!

With the launch of the iPad 3, Apple expects to ship 40 million units in 2012 with 25 million iPad 2’s sold during the same time period. That’s a crazy amount of tablets to be sold in one year. Will you be buying the new iPad 3. Will the new features give you the twitchy fingers to hand over your credit card numbers for Apple’s latest and greatest invention?

Let us know. Do you currently own an iPad or another tablet?
