Business Insider’s iPad User Survey Results

I’m always a little skeptical of surveys like this — I suspect participation tends to be self-selecting. Those most likely to complete such a survey are fans of the device. But, still, even if you consider that, these results are interesting. My favorite is question 4: the most popular activity on the iPad is surfing the web.

That’s what I mean about Apple being a big proponent and supporter of HTML5 and the open web. Not out of any sort of benevolence, but because best-of-breed mobile web browsing is essential to the success of the entire iOS platform.

(Also interesting: Kindle e-books were more popular than iBooks.)
