Apple’s third-generation iPad accounted for 4.7% of iPad traffic in the United States over the last 12 hours. The iPad original and iPad 2 accounted for the remaining 95.3%, obviously.
The iPad first went on sale on April 3, 2010, followed by the iPad 2 one year later on March 11, 2011. The new iPad began shipping three days ago – its main revolution being its resolution at twice the pixel density of its predecessor.
Hourly statistics from Chitika show that the new iPad captured as much as 5.5% overall iPad traffic share in the early hours of this morning.
The new iPad will be released to a further 25 countries on March 23, this Friday.
