Apple iPad has the fastest adoption rate ever : Study

According to Bernstein Research, the Apple iPad sold three million units in its first 80 days on sale, and in its first quarter the figure was around 4.5 million units. This makes the iPad the consumer electronics device with the fastest adoption rate of all time, with the iPhone ‘only’ managing one million units in its first quarter, and the DVD player only managing 350,000 units in its first year.

If this high rate of adoption continues, then according to CNBC, the iPad by itself will soon become the fourth biggest Consumer Electronics category in the U.S., surpassing gaming hardware and cellphones. In that case ipad will be behind just three CE categories-- TVs, smartphones, and notebook PCs. --------
