Apple iPad Incremental Sales vs. iPhone and iPods

The iPad has been available for Pre-order for a week now and sales are looking promising. Apple are pinning a lot of hops on this new tablet device, which will be shipping from April 3, but is it the game changer that we all thought it would be?

When Apple launched the iPod the competition was crushed by how popular the MP3 player had become — Apple then duplicated that success with the iPhone back in 2007. Now the Cupertino company hopes that the iPad will have that same success.

North Jersey explains that there is a problem with that though, the iPod and the iPhone was revolutionary in its design — the iPad is not, it is more a facsimile of a current design, but on a larger scale. This can be seen on a recent Doritos spoof video.

That is not to say that sales of the iPad will be affected by this small setback, they will just be more incremental than the iPhone and iPod were. Both Apple devices now have a cult status in the world of technology — not certain if this will ever happen with the iPad. Maybe in time, but that will not happen until the 2nd or 3rd- generation.
