Financial Times is reporting on a survey of 13k internet users in 14 countries. Here are some of the results:
The survey found that 28 per cent of those polled claimed that they intended to purchase a tablet or ereader within one year, and 49 per cent said they would buy one within three years.
...However, mass adoption would depend on the price of single-function devices such as the Kindle or Sony Reader falling to $100-$150 and the price of multipurpose devices such as the iPad coming down from $499 to $130-$200, the survey found. Two-thirds of respondents favoured devices that were capable of performing more than one task.
US consumers would pay just $5-$10 for an e-book, $2-$4 for a magazine and $5-$10 for a monthly newspaper subscription, the survey concluded.
In much of Europe, people were willing to pay higher prices, but in China and India respondents would pay no more than $3 for an e-book, $2 for a magazine and $2 for monthly newspaper access.
