Great news for Apple today from Chitika via iDownload Blog, with the publication of Chitikaâ€™s latest web traffic figures, which take in January 2013, and which show that Appleâ€™s iPad is back up to an 81% share of web traffic in the US and Canada, after a slight fall in the holiday period from 89% to 79%. Chitikaâ€™s data comes from many millions of devices that come into contact with its ad network, so it is usually pretty accurate. The figures also show that the iPadâ€™s closest rival was Amazonâ€™s Kindle Fire, although it still lagged way, way behind, with just 7.7% share. Despite all the trumpeting in certain corners of the media about Samsung being the new Apple, Samsungâ€™s Galaxy Tab came in third, with a tiny 3.9% share. iDownload Blog points out that the iPhone 5 also beat the competition from Samsungâ€™s Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note models to reign supreme in the smartphone usage share chart as well, with 8.27% share, in contrast to nearest rival Galaxy SIIIâ€™s 4.29%.
