Amidst the constant talk of this or that new tablet being the next iPad killer, it seems that the iPad is still the favourite of consumers, at least according to a new survey from The Yankee Group, as reported on by AppleInsider. The survey polled 506 consumers, asking them what tablet brand they planned on buying. As you can see from the table provided by The Yankee Group, the answer was a very big result for Apple, with 47% of respondents saying that they intended to buy Apple’s tablet (the figures did not indicate what percentage this was iPad mini or full-sized iPad, which would also have been very interesting). As AppleInsider notes, the figures for Apple’s main rivals are not very encouraging for them, with just 6% saying that they intend to buy a Samsung tablet, and 7% saying that they will buy an Amazon tablet (such as the Kindle Fire). And to put it in even more stark terms for Apple’s rivals, the iPad brand scored 20% higher than all the other brands put together!
