    It would be interesting to see the comparison figures for things such as netbook and laptop users in the world.

    50Million tablets to be sold in a 36 month period sounds reasonable, but will all those sales belong to Apple? I can't see that happening. Once other makes start flooding the market which no doubt will offer more and be cheaper models.

    The big selling point would be to businesses, but in my experiance and rounds, Apple products (other than Macs for music and graphics) are not considered business friendly in the working enviroment.

    In twelve months time I think we will see a trend much like mobiles at the moment, Android driven pads / tablets will explode with sales and uptake.

    I'm reading it as 100 million in 36 months - 13 million 2010, 36 million 2011 and 50 million 2012.

    I just can't see this happening in the real world. The iPad 2 and 3 will need to be very compelling indeed to drive that sort of adoption.

    I'm not even sure Apple is selling 50 million iPhones a year at the moment so I find it really hard to believe they would be selling more iPads in 2012 than they are selling iPhones now.

    How can a novelty item like an iPad sell in such quantities? They must be expecting a huge upturn in the world economy to enable that many people to go out and spend hundreds on pounds on a toy.

    The iPad is selling really well for apple, its already bigger revenue than the ipod,
    and half as much as the mac:
