Despite the ambiguous forecasts of various online publications, the results of the TUAW publication dispelled the myth about the fall in demand for the iPad and the negative opinion of consumers, especially in the United States. The data obtained from a survey of ordinary citizens helps to realistically assess the current state of the tablet device market.
TUAW recently published a survey of its ChangeWave survey to advise future potential buyers of the tablet. And to everyone's surprise, the iPad continues to outperform the competition in consumer demand.
So, according to the ChangeWave survey, obtained by questioning 3,000 American consumers, the majority chooses the iPad. About 73% of those surveyed who plan to buy a tablet in the next 90 days will buy an iPad.
For comparison, it is worth analyzing the survey data regarding tablets from other companies. The results show that only 8% of those surveyed want to buy an Amazon Kindle tablet. Interestingly, the results of the same survey for November 2011 showed the best data - about 22% of those surveyed were intending to buy a Kindle 4 or Kindle Fire. A sharp drop in consumer demand for this tablet is becoming obvious.
Perhaps this has something to do with the low rating of reviews from Kindle owners. According to ChangeWave, only 41% of current Kindle owners say they are truly satisfied with their tablet. Compared to 81% for iPad owners, Amazon's results are really negligible.
The situation is just as sad for one of the main rivals of the iPad - Samsung Galaxy Tab. Among 3,000 consumers surveyed, only 6% would like to purchase a Samsung tablet.
More than two years have passed since Apple released the iPad, but no company has yet been able to release an equally popular tablet. Or is it just a matter of time so far?
