Apple's iPad has only been on the market for less than a week, but it is already the second-most popular device (not counting laptops) that people connect to at airport Wi-Fi hotspots, according to the #1 provider of these hotspots in the US.
When it comes to these non-laptop devices, the iPad has a long way to go before it surpassing the product at the top spot. I mean, a long long way... The iPhone accounts for 90% of all portable devices that are connected to airport Wi-Fi networks through Boingo.
Boingo, which manages the wireless connections at 58 airports, said that the iPad has immediately shot up to 5.4%. That put it over Android devices, which takes 2.5% of the non-laptop-connection share. Blackberry, iPod Touch, and Windows Mobile devices rounded out the list, respectively, each with less than 2%.
