Men between the ages of 35 and 44 were among the early users of Apple's new iPad Tablet computer device, according to Yahoo researchers, who have been analyzing the use of the iPad on the company's network since the week after its launch.

Some 48 percent of iPad users accessing Yahoo's network of sites visited Yahoo on the iPhone previously, said Yahoo researchers May 6.

Apple's iPad tablet computer has rocketed to more than 1 million sales in less than a month, with the 3G version tacking on more sales upon its release last weekend.

The device uses a variant of Apple's iPhone OS, so users comfortable with the iPhone may logically be drawn to the iPad, whose touch screen resembles, well, a big iPhone touch screen.
