AT&T says iPad activations exploded thanks to iPad Air launch

iPad Air Sales

Apple might have stayed quiet on opening weekend iPad Air sales, but AT&T wasn’t quite as shy. The carrier didn’t announce any specific activation numbers, though mobile boss Ralph de la Vega did say that Apple’s iPad Air drove iPad activations up more than 200% compared to last year’s iPad launch weekend. “iPad activations on AT&T increased more than 200% over the past three days compared to last year’s launch weekend, driven by consumer excitement around the new iPad Air and the popularity of AT&T Mobile Share, which lets customers add an iPad to their existing data plan for just $10 a month,” de la Vega said in a statement. “We also saw strong demand for AT&T Next, which offers customers an iPad for $0 down on the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network.”
