Even with Apple increasing their iPad production, only 500,000 connected their iPad via ATT as compared to 2nd Quarter sales of 3.7 million.
But the fact that just 500,000 iPad owners are using ATT’s network could indicate that many are not interested in doing so. If the trend continues, this could result in disappointing growth prospects.
"Half a million at this point would seem low," said Pacific Crest analyst Steve Clement during an interview with Reuters.
On a similar note, a new study from professional service firm Deloitte finds that over half of U.S.-based iPhone users would be "very interested" in switching from ATT to Verizon Wireless for cellular services.
The online survey which took place a couple months back, asked 2,000 U.S. consumers between the ages of 14 and 75 years old about how they used their mobile devices.
