iPad Is The Best Selling Tablet In Canada With 62% Market Share [Report]

by on June 14th, 2012

According to a recent survey by CBC/Radio-Canada’s Media Technology Monitor (via The Vancouver Sun), Apple’s iPad is the top-selling tablet in Canada. The survey was based on 2000 anglophone Canadians and was conducted during March and April. The survey revealed how the rapid adoption of tablets continues with about 21% of tablet owners possessing one of the pricey devices, a figure which is up 3.5 times compared to last year when only 6% of anglophone Canadians had a tablet. The report also notes that Apple’s iPad was the most popular tablet with about 62% of market in Canada.

Detailing from the source:

Apple’s iPad was far and away the most popular tablet with about 62 per cent of the market in Canada, while Research in Motion’s BlackBerry PlayBook had a share of almost 20 per cent, according to the survey results.

The viewing of online video, on mobiles devices, computers and TV sets, also continues to grow.

About 71 per cent said they watched some type of online video in the past month, which was up two percentage points in the last six months. About one in five said they had watched a full-length TV episode in the past month, and 19 per cent said they’d watched a feature film online. About 15 per cent said they were Netflix subscribers, which was more than double the seven per cent that said they signed up for the service last spring.

The survey results are considered accurate within plus or minus 2.2 percentage points 19 times out of 20.
