Consumers in the US are continuing their love affair with Apple's iPad tablet device, new figures have suggested.
According to research compiled by RBC Capital Markets, around 200,000 of the systems have been sold in its opening quarter on sale.
It is believed that this is over 90,000 more per week than Apple's entire range of Mac computers, which highlights how the popularity of the system seems unlikely to die down anytime soon.
The UK launch of the iPad has been delayed from its original release on May 28th until June 7th, due to high levels of demand on the other side of the Atlantic.
When it does finally hit these shores, consumers in the UK will be able to buy mobile broadband data price plans to use in conjunction with the systems.
Broadband providers including Vodafone, O2 and Orange are launching the deals for use with the tablet devices.
