What's the difference between Apple's new iPad tablet and its iPhone?
Based on a quick analysis of the apps people are buying on the devices, it's pretty simple: The iPhone and iPod touch are for games. The iPad is for a lot more. And people are spending a lot more (per app) on iPad apps than iPhone apps.
- 82% of the top 50 iPhone/iPod touch apps are Games, versus 36% of the top 50 iPad apps.
- The top iPad app categories among the top 50 are Games (36%), Content (28%, includes news, video), Productivity (20%), and Utilities (16%, includes weather).
- The top iPhone app categories among the top 50 are Games (82%, includes gag apps) and Utilities (18%, includes weather, social networking).
- The average top-25 paid iPhone app was $1.51, versus $5.79 on the iPad (almost 4X difference).
