The iPad is huge. How huge? According to reports, if the brand were its own tech company, it would be the 11th largest in the US.
They also note that the iPad brand alone could make it into the Fortune 500, surpassing McDonalds and Nike. The report also says that the tablet is likely to grow in the next few years and could pull in as much as $46 billion in sales this year. That’s huge. If the analysis is right, the tablet will slow down around 2015, but should have massive market penetration.
