T-Mobile Reports Successful iPad Air Launch


T-Mobile said the arrival of the iPad on its network allowed the company to sell more tablets last Friday than it sold during the entire prior quarter.

T-Mobile didn’t provide a specific sales number, but its claim jibes with those made by other carriers. AT&T said on Monday that the launch of the iPad Air saw Apple tablet sales triple those from last fall’s iPad launch weekend.

The iPad Air has been a big hit. Everyone is reporting strong sales statistics. What’s currently not known is if the Mini will be equally successful or whether it has been overshadowed by the bigger iPad in this cycle.
