    Apple’s iPad still remains, by far, the tablet market leader. As reported by ABI Research, Apple shipped  11.8 million of iPads in the first quarter of this year.

    So what good is an Apple product release without a little controversy? We’ve had Antennagate and Batterygate with some of the iPhone launches. Even a little Locationgate and AddressBookgate along the way. With numerous anecdotal reports of hot iPads (and I don’t mean stolen), is it time for Heatgate? Probably not. With more than 3 […]
