iPad Not as Popular as Everyone Thought

Do you remember that iPad survey from three weeks back, the one that led everyone to say that the iPad will kill the Kindle? I didn't trust it because it was conducted only days after the iPad launch. Guess what, I just found a new survey that suggests it was wrong.

In a poll of 2176 Americans conducted last week, 15% are seriously considering buying an iPad in the next 3 months, and 14% are seriously considering buying a Kindle in the next 3 months. Yes, more poeple are going to buy an iPad, but just barely.

I don't really trust this survey data either, but it does support the hypothesis I had about the first one.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
