Tablet Crunch

Wow…. the iPad dominates at 88.1% compared to all other tablets. And I’m assuming that when you reference “Kindle”, you are including all Kindle devices? such as the Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire, and Kindle e-readers? would that be accurate?

equally shocking is that the Nook beat out the Kindle – and assuming that “Kindle” encompasses all Kindle devices such as the Kindle Fire and Kindle e-reader, this is a pretty impressive showing for the Nook.

    Your correct, we are collapsing the various models into a single number for both the Kindle (Fire, HD, e-readers, etc) and the Nook (regular, color, etc). Initially, I was surprised about the Nook being number two, but this has been a pretty consistent trend since we started tracking this metric a few weeks ago.

      interesting – I’m going to try to dig up some sales figure comparisons between the Nook and Kindle and see what I can get… surely there aren’t more Nooks out there compared to Kindles and Kindle Fires. And certainly Barnes and Nobles doesn’t have the marketplace – so what would you attribute to the Nook actually being used to generate more ecommerce than the Kindle?

The breakdown of mobile devices on the third page is kind of weird: iPhone’s 8.7%, iPad’s 9.8% and Android’s 5.5% do not add up to either 100% or 16.3%. So what do these numbers represent?

    Hi Robert,
    Happy to clarify. The numbers you quoted for iPad, iPhone, and Android represent their respective percentage of all online traffic. They do not add up to 100%, as there are other devices that contribute to online traffic – most notably PC’s (desktop and laptops), but also other mobile devices. The percentage of online sales that come from mobile devices was 16.3%, and we do not breakdown this number down by device.

      To clarify even further, do these numbers represent sales traffic from these devices, not purchases (sales) of these devices, correct?

How’d you guys get the feed of 1M transactions? I’m curious how each retailer sent you the data for analysis.

    IBM Coremetrics clients that have chosen to capture and analyse Ecommerce data also have the option to ‘opt-in’ to the IBM Coremetrics Benchmark for which they qualify based on vertical/sub vertical/geo etc..Couple this data with the standardised tagging approach where specific ecommerce tags are deployed and there you have the IBM Coremetrics Benchmark! Therefore the 1M transactions are supplied by these ‘opted-in’ clients.

I think the reason of Nook out numbering Kindle was the price factor. There were some great deals on Nook but not on Kindle. Nook price factor makes it a great gift item. Is this percentage based on actual numbers or dollars?
