Consumer Devices Will Sell More

May 20, 2010 15:05:01.000

This news about iPad sales doesn't surprise me:

Apple is selling more than 200,000 iPads per week. Which means, according to RBC Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky, that sales of the company’s new device have outpaced those of the Mac in the United States and are closing in on those of the iPhone 3GS.

While PCs (which includes Macs) are common household devices now, they aren't really consumer gadgets - they take work. The iPad moves away from that space, and into the general "easy to use" gadget space - like a TV, you turn it on and you're ready to go. Any such device, if successful, will outsell a tech gadget like a PC or Mac.
