Nagel, D. (2010) Media Tablet Growth to be driven by iPad Campus Technology, October 26
Gartner Consultants has updated its forecast for overall worldwide enterprise IT spending
“The all-in-one nature of media tablets will result in the cannibalization of other consumer electronics devices such as e-readers, gaming devices, and media players,” said Carolina Milanesi, research vice president at Gartner, in a written statement. “Mini notebooks will suffer from the strongest cannibalization threat as media tablet average selling prices (ASPs) drop below $300 over the next two years.”
An iPad for less than $300?! I told my wife to wait before buying one. Too late: $1,000 gone. That’s a really expensive way to read Jane Austen.
