Statspotting is reporting that the projected sales of Amazon Kindle fire is around 12 Million for 2012.
“If that happens, it would be Amazon vs Apple officially in the tablet space. We spotted this today:
“Mahaney estimates that Amazon will sell 12 million Fires in 2012 to wrest a 15 percent share of the tablet market from Apple. If he’s right, the Fire will end up generating about $3.2 billion in revenue, or about 5 percent of Amazon’s total”

Elton wrote to us regarding his new stylus for the iPad:
“To avoid the need to retouch every other pen stroke, I have decided to create my own stylus. After months of prototyping and change of design, I finally found the key to build a super responsive stylus. I want to produce my stylus, so more iPad users can benefit from it but the cost for production is too high for me to absorb. So I started a crowdfunding project to raise production funding for my new stylus, XStylus Touch for …
Some interesting statistic – Some 71% of iPad owners in the U.S. use the Apple tablet for gaming.
“We’ve known for a while now that Apple’s iOS platform was making the gaming industry nervous, but I don’t think we knew how much. Interpret is reporting that the iPad’s gaming base has grown to over 8 million in the U.S. alone…

Statspotting is reporting that some 250 million tablets would be sold by 2017.
We spotted this today:
“Shipments of consumer media tablets like the Apple iPad are expected to approach 250 million units in 2017, a report from In-Stat suggests. While analysts at In-Stat see tablet adoption growing rapidly over the next six years, even a number as large as 250 million is conservative when considering the estimates other firms have recently reported. ”
There have been some rumors on the iPad3 – now we have some dates as well –
“Apple will release the iPad 3 in early 2012, according to the Wall Street Journal’s unnamed sources. Rumors suggest the tablet will feature a high-res display.
Apple will apparently manufacture its first iPad 3 units in October, with an eye toward a launch early next year.
That report comes from the Wall Street Journal, itself quoting unnamed sources supposedly familiar with the matter. If verified, that would mean Apple is sticking with the release schedule …
One fact that should stand out from Apple’s Q3 results today is this:
“It’s only been a year and a few months since Apple’s iPad launched, but as of last quarter, it has already passed Apple’s 27-year-old Mac business in sales.
During the June quarter, Apple sold 9.2 million iPads for $6 billion in revenue. During that period, it sold 3.9 million Macs for $5.1 billion in revenue.”
Statspotting reports that 50 percent of all handset industry profits is made by Apple. That’s right, a player who had no presence in the field 4 years back.
“In less than four years, Apple went from not making a dime on handset sales to commanding approximately half of the industry’s profits, and is now poised to set the bar even higher by shipping 100 million iPhones over a 12-month span, financial experts say.”
Its all happening on iOS as well:
“As Google technician Erica Joy revealed on Google+, “the Google+ iPhone app has been submitted to the App Store (no not today, sometime prior to today) and is awaiting approval.”
We knew the iPhone app was coming soon, but we didn’t think the iOS app was already completed and submitted to Apple for approval. Based on previous experience with the approval process, we believe that the Google+ iOS app will debut sometime in the next two weeks.”
“Apple just confirmed during WWDC 2011 that it has sold 200 million iOS devices to date, including 25 million iPads. The iTunes store has also sold 15 billion songs and Apple has paid out over $2.5 billion to App Store developers.
200 Million iOS devices and 25 Million iPads are the two easy numbers. One in eight iOS devices sold is an iPad. Thats easy.”
