iPad hype exceeded only by results

As I suggested in a previous post (where I completely failed to guess the name of the iPad correctly), the results of iPad sales seem to be the only thing exceeding the hype around iPad.

According to Quantcast, iPad constituted 5% of all mobile web traffic consumption on launch day.

In fact, they’re selling so fast that Apple has been forced to delay the international launch of iPad (just six days after insisting the launch would not be delayed by US success).

It’sĀ interestingĀ to note how important new iPad apps are in driving iPad sales. Folks continue to underestimate apps.
