PR practitioners, content marketers, and similar – watch out for the tablet (or may I say Ipad) revolution! I guess you better be there or you will become square or screwed.
We all know by now that the new ipad3 will be launched the 16th of March. That’s great news. And we also know that the this tablet will contain some amazing features like much faster and more powerful A5X processor, a HD display with 2048×1536 pixels, 4G LTE Data connection and new iSight 5 Megapixel camera, and more. That’s even better news.
But the biggest most interesting news, from my point of view, is that the tablets are gaining huge market shares at the expense of computers(?), and that the Ipads now conquer the tablet market, entirely.
Avinash Kaushik recently said on Google+ that Tim Cook told the audience during the “gdgt” conference in SF:
“We’ve sold almost 15.5 million iPads last quarter alone. We sold more iPads in the last quarter alone than any PC manufacturer sold in their entire line.”
“Cook went on to say that his company has sold over 55 million iPads since the initial iPad tablet wasintroduced back in 2010.”
The reason? According to Tim Cook, it has to do with 200.000+ amazing apps which no other tablets have.
For content marketers, PR practitioners and others – this is your reality now.
Look at Avinash Kaushik’s picture and Tim cook’s graph, below, and think about it.
