There is little doubt on Wall Street and Main Street that Apple’s iPad is doing brisk business. There is even less doubt inside the industry. A new study released by the research firm IDC continues to show just how strong the iPad has done on the global electronics market. Thanks in large part to the release of the iPad 2; Apple controlled 68 percent of the tablet market in the second quarter of 2011. Granted, Apple had plenty of control over the market before that. While that 68 percent was an increase, it was only a three percent up tick from the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Apple saw iPad shipments hit 9.3 million while Android actually saw a rather large slip in the second quarter. IDC believes that a bit of Android’s fall was due to RIM entering the tablet market, but that wasn’t the whole story. RIM captured just 4.9 percent of the market in the second quarter while Android saw its market share fall from 34 percent in the first quarter to 26.8 percent in the second quarter.

Remember when Sprint was the odd man out when it came to the iPhone and the iPad? It appears that new rumors have the cellular company jumping into the iOS device family something fierce later this fall. While rumors that Sprint would be able to offer its own version of the iPhone 5 when it hits the market in October have been persistent, rumors about a Sprint iPad are brand new.
Being new doesn’t mean being wrong. Sprint has said it will allow unlimited data on the iPhone 5 as something that will set them apart from the other phone companies. Offering 4G data transmission could do the same for the company in regards to the iPad. The iPhone 5 has been reported to be available on October 7th and it would only make sense that if a Sprint iPad is coming, it would be released right along side the phone. Sources are claiming that the Sprint iPad will be completely different from the CDMA version that is currently offered with Verizon, truly making this model Sprint’s own.
Of course, the most enticing part of the iPad coming to Sprint is the possible return to unlimited data, even if they don’t go the 3G route. AT&T originally offered unlimited data plans for their iPads, but discontinued those plans in June of 2010. With Sprint’s willingness to offer unlimited data plans on the iPhone, it seems like a pretty good bet that they would be willing to offer the same sort of plans on their iPads.

When the Apple Store went down yesterday evening there was quite a buzz that something big might be coming. People who were hoping that all of the sudden the iPhone 5 would be showing up on the store registry were probably disappointed but there were some decent changes made in the overall presentation of the store. Some of these changes should make it quite a bit easier to shop in the store and know exactly what you are getting and when. When buying the iPad in particular there are some welcomed tweaks in the ordering process.
When clicking on the “Buy Now” button on the store you are now transported to a better purchasing page where you can select the color, model and carrier for your iPad should you choose to go with the 3G model. Apple has long had the old standby of “Ships in 24 hours” but that has now been replaced with “In Stock.” This particular “In Stock” seems to have also replaced “Ships in 1-3 days” as well, though there are still some products that still have “Ships in 2-4 days.”

Those who thought that all the talk about another iPad coming out either this fall or next year would stunt the sales of the iPad 2 appear to be wrong. In fact the demand of the iPad 2 and the iPad only seem to be growing amid rumors of yet another Apple tablet coming out sometime on the horizon. According to industry analysts, Foxconn is preparing to ship as many as 20 million iPad 2s to Apple in the third fiscal quarter of this year.
Should those numbers prove to be accurate it would mean that there has been more than a doubling of the demand for the iPad 2 over last quarter when 9.25 million iPad 2s were shipped. Apple has long said that the only limit on iPad sales has been the availability of units and these projections seem to prove that out. All-in-all there are expected to be over 25 million iPads and iPad 2s sold in second half of this year. That would mean that the demand is in fact increasing by more than 75 percent over first half of 2011.
In addition, industry analysts say that in total, Apple will be selling 40 million of the 65.2 million total tablets sold, meaning that Apple holds a market share of 61 percent when it comes to tablets. Tablets in general have become much more popular than they were in 2010 with an overall jump in demand of an incredible 420 percent. Now let’s imagine what the release of the iPad 3, reportedly complete with Retina display and a faster processor will do for demand in 2012.
