iPad to be this year’s must-have?

If the volume of advertising is anything to go by, the iPad and other “tablet” computers look set to become the big technology marketing story this Christmas. As our graph shows there is a great deal of interest in the iPad particularly, with 24% of over-25s and 14% of 18-24 year-olds saying they are very interested in owning one. A significant 2-3% of people say they are very likely to buy one. It will also be interesting to compare today’s prediction with actual sales in January because Christmas shoppers tend to buy more gifts than they expected to. With so many new entrants, tablet computers look set to come of age this Christmas.
