Apples iPad Identifying Early Adopters and Intentions to Buy

Please contact us to discuss pricing Contact Us

Report Summary:

With the launch of the iPad, as so often in the past, Apple has reinvented an entire device category and injected new life into the consumer electronics industry. Our consumer survey finds that early iPad buyers are overwhelmingly existing Apple device customers. The buying intentions of the US population as a whole suggest this is unlikely to change. So Apple may be preaching to the converted with its new device, but the rate at which existing Apple customers are adopting the iPad suggests that Apple need not worry about expanding its presence into new US households in the near term: there is plenty of potential from existing customers alone. This report presents the findings from a survey of 2000 US consumers fielded in July 2010, identifies which customers have adopted iPads so far, and explores the buying intentions of the population as a whole for a product which could prove highly strategically disruptive to players from traditional mobile, TV and PC spaces.
