When iPad was launched in India, after an year of its announcement elsewhere in the world, there isn’t much excitement. Apple wasn’t expecting any. Excitement delayed is excited denied. People who devour the brand and the product have already got it through various channels. People who didn’t get it, either didn’t care or didn’t want it. Things might have changed after the actual launch of the product in the country. But they didn’t. At least it appears so.
UTV backed TechTree has a survey going on to track iPad response. And the results are startling. Not just for Apple but for the whole tablet fraternity. To start with, only 5% were going to buy an iPad with 30% waiting for iPad2. 4% of the survey population already have one. No surprises so far, despite the fact that Apple has actually got its pricing right.
As a refresher to the rest of the tablet makers, 28% said that they are interested in a non-Apple tablet. There aren’t many non-Apple choices around. The only non-Apple choices are an army of Android tablets and a lonely windows-based MSI tablet. A very good news for the tablet makers waiting in the wings.
For everyone else, a whopping 33% aren’t interested in buying a tablet. That’s a decent population. That’s is quite something isn’t it. With all the craze going on, these 33% population is undeterred. Mind you, this population has voted on TechTree and the assumption of “they know what a tablet is” will hold true. If there is a viable candidate well within an affordable range then may be, this section of the crowd will swing. Who would that viable candidate be? And which non-Apple tablet are you buying?
