Apple’s “magical” device the first choice of 80% of respondents who plan to buy a tablet
In this survey of 3,108 early adopter types, more of whom presumably own Apple’s (AAPL) tablet computer than did six months ago, the “very satisfieds” were down 3 points to 71% and the “somewhat satisfieds” up 6 points to 23% — ratings overall that ChangeWave research director Paul Carton described as “world class.”
Asked if they planned to buy a tablet, an “extraordinary” 26% said they did, according to Carton, with 8% very likely and 18% somewhat.
Below: The dismal results for the also rans, most of which still haven’t left the starting gate.
