iPad loses tablet traffic share over holidays- shocking!

In the Anti-Mac corners of the universe, Jobs-Hegemony-haters chuckle happily at the news that the iPad actually lost a little bit of ground to other devices over the gift-giving season.

The iPad still dominates overall tablet traffic, with 78.86 percent of all traffic from slates, but it dropped from 86 percent pre-Christmas. Chitika still expects it to climb back above 80 percent, but it does suggest that a lot of gift-givers opted for (likely less expensive) alternatives from Android-based competitors this year.
