We are excited to report the iPad 2 is a smash hit and it has attracted many new buyers to the platform, and as a result more potential customers for our content-driven apps. Over 30% of all i-Mobilize apps are bought by iPad users.

A survey of customers buying the iPad 2 at launch has found that 70 percent of those customers are new to the platform and did not own Apple’s original iPad, according to Apple Insider.

Researchers at Piper Jaffray, including analyst Gene Munster, polled 236 people in line for the iPad 2 when it went on sale last Friday. Launches are usually driven by users upgrading, like last year’s launch of the iPhone 4, when just 23 percent of handset buyers were new to the iPhone platform.

But Piper Jaffray’s poll found that more than two-thirds of first-day iPad 2 buyers are new to the iPad, suggesting that Apple’s touchscreen tablet is attracting many new users with its second-generation model.

“We continue to believe that Apple sold 400k-500 iPad 2s over the weekend,” Munster wrote. We note that the weekend number for iPad 2 is essentially a launch day total because stock across retailers was mostly depleted late Friday and not replenished during the weekend.”

Munster’s numbers are largely in line with other analysts, who expect Apple to sell at least a half-million of the iPad 2 in its launch weekend. At least one more bullish analyst has said investors shouldn’t be surprised if Apple sells a million.

Munster has forecast sales of 5.5 million iPads in the March quarter, a number he said is now “likely conservative” based on strong demand for the iPad 2 in both stores and online.
