In the US 1 iPad is Sold For Every 9 People

As part of the ongoing court battle between Apple and Samsung, the Cupertino company filed some documents to provide sales numbers for the tablet in the US market.

The device has sold 34 million units in the United States since its launch in April 2010. According to MacWorld, that’s roughly one iPad for every nine people in the country. It also brought in $19 billion in revenue for the company. Meanwhile, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab sold 1.4 million units while bringing in $644 million.

Worth noting, however, as the report points out, Apple’s data covers nine quarters of sales while Samsung’s covers seven.

Still, here is another kicker from the MacWorld report:

Apple sold more iPads in any single three-month period than the Galaxy Tab has thus far sold in total. The weakest quarter for the iPad was the first quarter of 2011, when sales hit 1.9 million units. Strongest sales came in the last three months of 2012, just before the end-of-year sales period and after Apple launched new iPad models. Sales during that period were just under 6 million units.

Interesting, indeed.
