We've already had a few discussions on this site about your feelings on the iPad before the announcement vs after the announce (ie. Did the iPad disapoint you?). These discussions have all been anecdotal. However, the Retrevo blog has finally broken down this type of stuff statistically with a before and after study and the results are pretty striking.
Of the survey participants, only 26% were not interested in the iPad prior to the reveal and press conference. However, afterwards 52% were not interested. This is a huge up-tick of people who after hearing the real low-down on the product are no longer interested.
Is this simply a case of the reality never being able to live up to the hype? What are your thoughts?
