Apple’s iPad rules the Web

Tablets are becoming increasingly visible on the Internet. 96.8% of them are iPads

On Sunday we reported on a Net Applications' survey for June that found Apple (aapl) devices were responsible for more than 60% of U.S.-based mobile Web browsing -- 35.2% of it on iPhones and 25.5% on iPads. See here.

Today we want to drill a little deeper into Net Applications' tablet data.

In their report for May they found that tablet computers were responsible for 0.95% of Web browsing among their clients' sites -- not just in the U.S. but worldwide -- and that 96.8% of that traffic was coming from iPads.

Last week the Web analytics firm reported that the iPad's share alone of all Internet browsing had passed 1%, and that in the U.S. it is now 2.1%.

The competition -- chiefly from Samsung, Motorola (mot) and Research in Motion (rimm) -- is negligible.
