Apple likely to spend millions on iPad ads

Amid all the hype for the iPad, Advertising Age gets down to how it may actually help people: “if Apple’s history of introducing the iPod and the iPhone is any guide, tens of millions of dollars in ad spending is fast approaching.”

In 2001, Apple spent $28.5 million advertising the iPod alone or together with iTunes, the magazine says. In 2007, the company spentĀ $16.6 million on ads to introduce the iPhone.

In both campaigns, most money went to network TV followed by consumer magazines then cable TV, and “spot TV, business-to-business magazines and newspapers divided up the slivers.”
