According to a survey of 2000 US consumers by Strategy Analytics, only 2% of US homes which do not currently own an Apple device intend to buy an iPad during the next 12 months, compared to 18% of Apple-owning households. 

The report, “Apple's iPad: Identifying Early Adopters and Intentions to Buy,” finds that ownership of another Apple product, such as an iPod, Macbook or iPhone, is the strongest indicator of intention to buy an iPad. For example, nearly a third of iPhone users in the US plan to buy an iPad during the coming year. In total 90% of iPad sales are expected to come from existing Apple device owners.

“Apple’s iPad is preaching to the converted,” says the report’s author, David Mercer, Principal Analyst at Strategy Analytics. “Many iPhone, Apple computer and iPod owners have snapped up their first iPad in the first few months since it was launched, and many of those who haven’t plan to follow suit over the coming year.”

Preaching to the converted? Zing.

That is pretty pathetic. Apple users need a wake up call.

The old-school, 'industry experts' said the same thing about the iPhone, the iPod, etc, etc. Sales stats proved them wrong AGAIN! Those who enjoy technology that works exactly as advertised, continuously without the blue screen of death aggravation found in the alternative, will continue to be evangelists for the Apple product line.  We buy Apple products because we love them and they work!
