Story on how iPad may be cannibalizing Notebook sales. Strange though that none of my friends own an iPad yet (just for record, many have iPhones/iPods including me but please see I live in Redmond in the midst of Microsoft partisan crowd). Guess we are not consuming enough J What this report doesn’t tell is that whether this decline is because of people not buying Notebooks because they are buying iPads/rival products or just that people are not buying Notebooks, period. Will be good to know before awarding the round one of this fight to Tablets.
Notebook sales growth goes negative. Can we blame the iPad yet?
Huberty concludes: "We expect tablets to continue to pressure PCs as more vendors launch products (e.g., Dell Streak and Samsung Tab) and Apple expands its iPad distribution."
