Mary Meeker, a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and a highly respected technology industry analyst, recently published her 2012 Internet Trends report which includes several interesting facts relevant to the iPad and tablet devices:
iPad adoption (# of units sold) has not only surpassed the iPhone, but the rate of iPad growth is 3 times that of the iPhone
29% of US adults own a tablet or e-reader (up from less than 2% three years ago)
Tablets and smartphones outsold PCs (desktops/notebooks) in 2012 and their installed base will exceed that of PCs by the second quarter of 2013
Apple reported it sold a record 3 million iPads in three days following the launch of the iPad mini and fourth generation iPad in November 2012.
Today, we’re pleased to announce support for the new iPad mini.
ServicePal has been tested and is fully supported on the iPad mini which Apple launched today. Because ServicePal was natively developed for the iPad, the app runs unchanged and works beautifully on the iPad mini’s 7.9-inch display, which offers 35% more screen real estate than 7-inch tablets. ServicePal for iPad mini retains the same compelling UI and works with built-in iOS features such as voice dictation and maps.
The iPad mini is an entirely new design that’s pencil-thin, weighs only 0.68 lbs and features a 5 megapixel camera. An iPad mini installed with ServicePal puts much more power in the hands of your service techs, than lugging around a traditional clipboard.
ServicePal for iPad is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Business category.
