The Apple iPad is truly one of the most dominating devices in the history of silicon-chip technology. Despite fierce competition from Android, the iPad continues to stay at the top of the heap. This is especially true in Japan, where a new study indicates over half of the top ten tablets are variants of the iPad. A new study from the Japanese consumer electronics tracking company BCN indicates that 6 out of 10 best-selling tablets in Japan are all iPads.
The different versions of the iPad Air comprise places 1, 5, 9 and 10 on the chart, and various versions of the iPad mini make up the No. 2 and No. 8 spots. The popularity of the iPad in Japan will certainly make retailers (and Apple) happy this holiday season.
As an interesting sidebar, the other four positions are held by different variants of the Asus-made Google Nexus 7 tablet.
