Interest in iPad still dwarfs Android, other platforms

Written by

95% of potential tablet buyers want to join the sect
According to a new survey of potential tablet buyers, vendors who don’t have any fruit in their logos don’t stand much of a chance in the market.

The survey covered 1,114 people, 95 percent of whom said they would choose the iPad ahead of any other tablet. However, it is worth noting that more than 98 percent of participants live in the US, a market known for its love of Apple gear.

Participants were allowed to pick multiple tablets, hence some 10 percent said they were interested in the HP ToucPad, while just over 8 percent said they were looking into Samsung’s Tab 10.1 or Motorola Xoom. Four percent would consider RIM’s Playbook, while Asus and Acer ranked at the bottom, with just 2.1 percent and 0.8 percent of consumers interested in the Eee Pad and Iconia tablets.

The survey also found that 83 percent of tablet owners still plan to buy new PCs in addition to their tablets.

Don't Knock it till you try it. I garantee if any of those Apply fanboys spend 1 week with Honeycomb device, those numbers would change. IF these people have any sense of creativity to enjoying the freedom of how do you say it... Customization? You've heard of...communism correct, yeah thats apple they give you what THEY make you put up with it and shut up.

I reckon people that buy Android handsets rather spend that amount of money on a notebook.

Tablets still lack any real usage scenario, 'killer app' if you will.

Its funny to hear that kind of ignorance in the face of reality. While the PC is slumping, the tablet is booming! :lol:

Riiight I see. Just like the console is fad blah, blah, blah, What "tech" does a PC get?!! An PC w/intergrated graphics is nothing more than a glorified tablet. Do you think the tablet will just "disappear or something?!! :D Technology changes, and the way people use technology changes. The market is adjusting to the way people use technology if you're paying attention (you're not). How long has the iPad been out? How long has this fad been in effect? Can "you" prove otherwise?

Wow! you are the one that's ignorant. Tablets are useless in real world work area. I would like to see a tablet do video editing/creation, cgi animation, photo editiing, etc etc. Oh but tablets can be used as a remote control for my TV. Moron.

Fad thats all it is. Once used and people find no real function for it, it just ends up collecting dust.
