Yahoo! Mobile Blog has an interesting analysis that may help shed more light on who the typical iPad user is. See images 1 thru 3 below for the diagrams based on data collected during the analysis.
In short, according to Yahoo! – iPad users are predominantly male (2:1 margin) and 35 to 44 YO age group is heavily represented. Overlay that with Chitka’s stats (see Image 4) where California and NY have the largest iPad user base, add to that a bit of ‘average income by state‘ stats (also see Image 5) – and you should be able to draw some educated guesses…
