Survey Says: 60% Plan to Buy an iPad 2
Today was iPad 2 Day and we’ve been running a poll asking readers if you’ll plop down the $500 to buy one. I have to confess, I wasn’t hugely moved by what was unveiled today and I don’t know if or when I’m going to feel like buying a second iPad. Apparently most of our readers feel otherwise. Here’s our summary of what was announced today.
Nearly 60% of almost 1200 poll respondents, from 63 countries, today said they expect to buy an iPad 2 – and the percentage is even higher (62%) in the United States. More than 20% of respondents said they were going to buy one and that it would be their second iPad purchased. That sounds like a successful launch day to me – but of course we have a pretty geeky audience! You all won’t have to wait long, either. The iPad 2 will be available on March 11th. We’ve got another poll for you below, though. Do you secretly wish an Android tablet would appear that could beat it?
Here’s a screenshot below of the results from today’s poll:
And here’s your next question…what about Android?
What do you think – are you waiting for a knight in shining Android armor to come and save you from Apple? Or are you just fine with the love affair so many of us find ourselves in with iOS multitouch devices and their rich, rich app ecosystems?
