Who Will Buy the New iPad 3?
In accordance with a number of rumors and reports, Apple will likely announce the new iPad 3 on March 7th 2012. That’s only a week away, and there is no doubt that people who either own an iPad or perhaps want to buy one are very excited. Now, we are expecting the new iPad 3 retina display to show up.
In addition to that, a new and even better camera, much faster processor as well as iPad 3 Siri support has been rumored. But, what is the real reason why people want to buy an Apple’s third gen device? And what are the factors that will have an effect on your decision when going for the new iPad 3.
So, who is going to buy the new iPad 3, and what people expect to do with it? We have the answer. In order to get this information, there were made some researches this month. There were asked 2,000 Americans who don’t own an iTablet, and about 500 iPad owners. The report shows that about 3x of the current owners of Apple tablet are more likely to buy the new iPad 3 than non-owners.
So, what could Apple do in order to make more people buy or upgrade to the new gadget? First of all, a better camera would make about 29% of current iPad owners upgrade and about 25% non-owners buy the new tablet. Another effective way to attract the potential buyers is to move more of the production into the USA. About 19% of current iTablet owners say that iPad 3 display is a key reason why they want to upgrade.
Despite the fact that Siri is incredibly popular today, the presence of this voice assistant on the iPad is only interesting to 14% of Americans. But those, who have at least one iDevice would be 7x more likely to buy the new iPad 3 if it had Siri. Besides Siri and a better camera, a faster CPU is much more important to the Apple’s tablet owners, but may attract 26% of any iPad users to upgrade.
The research has also shown that if you own an iPad, it’s 1.7x more likely that there will be other iPad owners in your family. About 23% of non-iPad owners have family members who have one or even more tablets. And 39% of iPad owners have family members who have one or more tablets.
This was just a research, and we can’t be completely sure who will buy the new device and what iPad 3 features will show up. We’ll see in a couple of weeks.
