Apple's third-generation iPad has only been available for two months now, but it has already caught up to the first-generation iPad market share in the US, according to market analysis firm Localytics. The new model is enjoying over 20-percent of all US-based iPad sales, a little over 1-percent more than the first-generation iPads.
The iPad 2, released last year, is ahead of both the first- and third-gen iPads in terms of market share. The iPad 2 has around 60-percent of the US iPad market share, but the third-generation iPad has moved up from the 14-percent it had just after it was released, to the now 20-percent market share, a nice improvement for a very new product.
How have Localytics gotten to these numbers? Well, the market share determination comes from iPad apps that use Localytics for app analytics.
