Boingo Wireless is a great service providing wi-fi access to thousands of hotspots and airports around the country. It just works. I have used it many times when I travel and have been thankful I coughed up the extra few dollars. People connect their laptops, netbooks, iPods and iPhones using Boingo every day.
Well, according to a post over at MediaBistro, the number one connected device on Boingo’s network is the iPhone, the number two…is the iPad.
Apple’s iPhone is the #1 device found using Boingo’s wireless service in airports. It accounts for almost 90% of of non-notebook devices using Boingo’s WiFi. But, look what turned up as the #2 device:

The iPad accounted for 5.4% of non-notebook device connections. And, check out what came in after it.

So, the distribution of device WiFi use on Boingo’s airport network looks like this:
Less than 2% BlackBerry
Less than 2% iPod touch
Less than 1% Windows Mobile
For a device that has been out for less than a week, all I can say is damn. And to Boingo’s infrastructure team, time to do a network upgrade!
