Interesting chart out from Chitika that shows the percentage of the new iPad traffic in the U.S. compared to the overall iPad traffic. This simple pie chart compares the new iPad with that of its predecessors, the first gen iPad and the iPad 2.
Currently the new iPad has 5.709% of the total iPad traffic in the U.S. with the first gen iPad and iPad 2 holding the other 94.291%.
A couple of other cool graphs you’ll find at Chitika are the U.S. iPad traffic share by the hour chart, and the adoption rate by state. Currently, the state of California has the highest adoption rate of the new iPad at 6.528% with the Nevada (6.225%) and Connecticut (6.024%) coming in second and third.
Apple has been experiencing record sales with the new iPad. In the first weekend alone over 3 million new iPads were sold and there’s no slowdown in sight. Just to comparatively put this in perspective. Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet became the best selling Android tablet when it sold between 4 million and 6 million units in during the third quarter of 2011.
