It doesn't matter how many they ship, it matters how many they sell. From what I understand, I was told this morning that the ip5 still sells out around here. I also purposely pay attention to what kind if phone people have and about 75% of the people I come in contact with have iPhones.

I wouldn't expect them to continue to sell more iPads than any other tablet. Android is saturating the market with tablets and so will Microsoft. For me, it's about who is selling the better tablet.
