iPad 3 demand already high before launch
The upcoming new Apple iPad has already become popular amidst the tech savvy people. The company is yet to announce the official specifications of the new iPad, but 30 percent of the mobile web users intend to purchase the new tablet.
In a poll conducted in the US, in which 689 of the mobile users had participated, it was found that 29 percent of the respondents are looking to buy the iPad 3 and surprisingly about 54 percent of that group does not currently own a tablet.
The report also said that 65 percent of those who wanted to buy an iPad said that they can also opt to buy a discounted iPad 2 instead of an iPad 3 at full price. It was also found that 50 percent of the prospective iPad buyers were ready to pay more than $500 for their new tablet.
But if the tablet would go above the price range of $500 then the buyers would go for an older and a cheaper version. This has clearly indicated that it does not matter if the consumers opt for the new iPad against the older iPad, but the excitement around the iPad release is very likely to increase the popularity of the iPad in the tablet market.
