Blowing the numbers off the doors

IDC released data on the relative market shares of devices in that market space and I believe wisely choose to separate E-Readers and Tablets.  I suggested that separation when the iPad was first introduced.   There is still a strong market for single use devices.  Amazon has been smart about adjusting the price of their device.

Total sales of all the devices in this area are growing but it sure looks like the Tablets will take over the netbook market sooner rather than later.

Finally there are the Apple numbers from the last quarter.  Doubled the profits and sales of both the iPad and the iPhone grew rapidly.   That is an amazing result.   While the news of the illness of Apple CEO Steve Jobs dumped a bit on shares yesterday the prospects for the next couple of quarters on Apple look very strong.
