Apple’s Second Quarter Sales Numbers Show iPad Fever Is Cooling

The usual mind blowing revenue numbers from Apple and as with the title of the article a slowing in iPad sales makes for some interesting forecasts on where the tablet market is headed (if anywhere). Personally I still view the iPad as grossly overpriced when you compare it to quality Android alternatives like my own favourite, the Nexus 7.

Also worthy of contemplation is that figure of just 3million iPod sales in the quarter, down from 23million in 2008. A device which changed the world and sold in such insane volumes (both in terms of hardware and media) is selling just 10% of what it did six years ago, I certainly can’t think of any precedent for that kind of drop off for such a mass market device.
