Apple's recent earnings report revealed that it has sold 17 million iPads just between April and June. That averages out to a around 5.7 million iPads shipped each months, which is an 84 per cent increase from the same time last year.

We will be watching this space very carefully to see how "budget" tablet such as the Nexus 7 and the upcoming Surface offerings from Microsoft will impact on Cupertino - if they do at all.
Get ready - the tablet market is about to become fascinating.
