Looks like the iPad’s consumer appeal is still going strong, at least according to a report by retail analytics company Infoscout covering top selling items on Black Friday at 3 leading US retailers.
As Apple Insider reports, An iPad was the top selling product at two out of the three major US retailers covered by the report – the 16GB iPad mini was the Number 1 selling item at Walmart, while the 16GB iPad Air was Number 1 at Target. In fact at Target the top three sports were all iPad – with 16GB iPad mini and 32GB iPad Air in the 2nd and 3rd spots.
At Best Buy the older iPad 2 was at the number 2 spot, trailing the Microsoft Surface RT. It’s more than a little shocking to see a Surface surface in the report – although it was selling at a heavily discounted price.
Throw in sales at Apple’s own retail outlets and online store and it seems like the iPad may have had quite a good holiday weekend.
