According to data collected by web metrics firm Net Applications, the iPad OS has blasted past Android in terms of usage share in three months.

The data says it all:

  • March 2010: Android: 0.07% | iPad: 0.00%
  • April 2010: Android: 0.09% | iPad: 0.03%
  • May 2010: Android: 0.11% | iPad: 0.09%
  • June 2010: Android: 0.14% | iPad: 0.17%

Remember, this is usage share, not market share, and since the Android platform has vastly outsold the iPad, this is an indication of how much browsing iPad owners do.

As an iPad owner myself, I can testify to just how easy it is to while away the hours browsing on the thing.
