iPad sales reach 100 million since launch in April 2010
The Apple iPad is a tremendous success. It created the tablet category anew in April 2010, and now the iPad has reached a mind-boggling 100 million sales in the 2 and a half years since its launch.

Putting this into context, CEO Tim Cook mentioned that Apple sold more iPads in the June quarter than any PC manufacturer did of their entire lineup. Talk about the post-PC world.

The iPad has gone a long way since the first tablet arrived. The original iPad launched in April 2010 with a 9.7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. Now, it’s with a resolution of 2056 x 1536 pixels, lighter and thinner than the original, and prolific in institutions like universities, schools and medical facilities.

100m, 3 versions. Multiple variants. Every restored, replaced, or renewed adds another.

google and amazon gotta step the game up an deliver. for google its simple and clear. the failure lies in their slow updates. apple has succeeded to do well because it gives users 1) security 2) the controlling freaky deaky show they put on enables them to give updates and keep on closing the patches up. google you must update faster and bring out your own line of devices. cause carriers are homoz secondly give android security and BOOM you will be rocking and rolling i aint a fanboy but this is a true story
