MacNN.com is reporting today that online advertiser Chitika is claiming that over 1 million iPads have already been sold. Chitika is basing this assessment on their tracking figures of iPads seen coming through their advertising network, which include the number of unique devices to make contact. Chitika says that California, which they call the â€œiPadest state in Americaâ€, has the highest iPad distribution figures, of 19.12 percent of all iPads. New York has the second highest percentage of 8.3, while Wyoming has the lowest percentage of all, with just 0.03. Previously Chitika had erroneously claimed that 500,000 iPads had been sold just a few days after launch, but they say that they have since adopted a different accounting method that they consider to be more accurate.
Check out their website at iPad Stats - Chitika Labs to follow their real-time tracker of estimated iPads sold and watch as those digits just keep on ticking.
