The following statement may be attributed to Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO, AT&T Mobility:“iPad activations on AT&T increased more than 200% over the past three days compared to last year’s launch weekend, driven by consumer excitement around the new iPad Air and the popularity of AT&T Mobile Share, which lets customers add an iPad to their existing data plan for just $10 a month. We also saw strong demand for AT&T Next, which offers customers an iPad for $0 down on the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network.” *AT&T products and services are provided or offered by subsidiaries and affiliates of AT&T Inc. under the AT&T brand and not by AT&T Inc.
Apple has not yet released opening weekend numbers on the iPad, but this initial data is an indicator that the iPad Air is off to a great start for this Holiday shopping season.

Today, Apple began taking orders for its new iPad Air online and opened its retail locations at 8am in the United States. The iPad Air is lighter, with a narrower bezel than the previous iPad model, and sports Apple’s 64-bit A7 chip architecture which can also be found in the iPhone 5s. The iPad Air reception was welcomed with modest lines at retail stores around the world, but as with the iPhone, many users order online to avoid waiting in line. Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple would have an abundant supply of Airs for launch day, but it’s smaller counterpart, the iPad mini, would be constrained at launch later in November. ‘It’s not clear if we’ll have enough’ iPad minis with Retina displays for Christmas, said Cook.

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced during the quarterly earnings call on 10/28/13 a figure some may or may not have been shocked by. According to Cook, iPads are attributed 94% of the tablet market in education. This figure in my opinion fortifies the “ease of use” I’ve come to admire in iOS. If a product can dominate with 94% of the market share, it must be easy to use, right? Additionally with the plethora of educational apps in the App Store(40,000 at this time), it’s almost a no-brainer when the question in an educational facility arises, “Apple or Android?”. All these educational apps are also designed especially for the iPad from the ground up, utilizing features such as multi-touch, accelerometers and airplay, developers have a pretty big canvas for creativity. Another great feature of iPads the general public is probably not aware of is a program called “Apple Configurator”, this allows you to manage all your devices in the environment from an enterprise standpoint. Apple Configurator allows you to essentially without an IT department deploy standard configurations, assign devices to users, update devices to the latest version of iOS, configure settings, and install apps among other things.
