Led by the new Apple iPad Air, AT&T activated 200% more iPads over this past launch weekend than it launched last year; Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of AT&T Mobility, said that part of the reason for the surge in activations was the attractive pricing of the carrier's Mobile Share plan which allows tablets to be added to an existing plan for $10 per month...

It's an obvious reason why it is 200%. All of the people last year who bought an iPad 3 last year wouldn't buy a 4. So all the iPad 4 sales were severely limited by that double iPad release last year. So this year you have the number you would have had last year if there was only one iPad released. It is just simple logic, nothing amazing about marketing or plans or whatever they attribute this to.

FF c'mon dude, you sound like a hater man, just give credit where it's due dude. The air is a hit, and a great device bro. This constant calculating hatred you show of apple, takes away from you just being a techie man. Woosaaaaaa

Calm down sir, how is this hating? It is just simple logic. I'm not saying its bad or something, but its a simple expectation that iPad 4 numbers were low because of iPad 3 release. The fact that they sold millions is great and amazing for them. Yet the iPad 4 would have at least sold twice as many units if the iPad 3 wasn't released 6 months before. Just don't attribute it to AT&T's crappy plans and their NEXT whatever scam is all I am asking.
