Evidently eBay thinks the iPad is going to be huge. Big enough that the opened up a subdomain just for it. They haven’t announced it yet but a reader stumbled on it and emailed me. Not quite sure of the reasoning behind it as it really serves no purpose other than gives users an easy domain to remember when looking for iPad products. Of course you could just type in iPad in the search. I’m sure that ebay is strong enough in the Google rankings that it wasn’t done for SEO reasons.
I would venture to guess that this is an attack on Amazon, eBay’s nemesis. Ebay is hoping that the iPad will take away the momentum the Kindle gave to Amazon and eBay would love to slow down Amazon.
