iPad Mainly Appeals to Existing Apple Customers

iPad Mainly Appeals to Existing Apple Customers

In the two months since the iPad launched in the UK, YouGov has found that 96 per cent of the 713 iPad owners surveyed owned products such as an iPod, iPhone or Mac.

Russell Feldman, YouGov's technology and telecoms research manager, said: 'By Christmas this is expected to be a much more crowded marketplace, with a number of consumer goods brands providing alternatives to the iPad.'

A total of 713 UK iPad owners were interviewed in the online study between 27 July and 2 August.

BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion and Samsung are both expected to launch a rival to the iPad before Christmas. Acer and T-Mobile are also tipped to enter the tablet market in the next few months.

In Apple's recent 2010 Q3 results, ending 26 June, it attributed a 77 per cnet increase in profit to sales of its Mac, iPhone and iPad. The company sold 3.47 million Macs, 8.4 million iPhones, 9.41 million iPods and 3.27 million iPads during the quarter.
