4th Quarter US Tablet Sales Predictions
« on: December 18, 2012, 03:11:31 PM »

CNN Money published theses predictions for 4th quarter US Tablet sales and I was pleased to see Nexus 7 shown as 12% of the market in the 4th quarter up from nothing in the 3rd quarter. I do agree that the Kindle Fire will out sell the Nexus 7 in the 4th quarter, but I don't think we will 24% vs 12% difference that the poll predicts. What is your opinion?


Based a survey of U.S. households with broadband access published by Parks Associates.

 •For the first time, more U.S. broadband households plan to purchase a tablet for the holidays than a laptop, netbook or Ultrabook.

 •33% of U.S.  broadband households now own a tablet, up from 15% last year, and Parks forecasts 66% of U.S. broadband households will have one by 2013.

 •44% of holiday tablet shoppers plan to purchase an Apple (AAPL) iPad versus the 24% opting for Amazon's (AMZN) Kindle Fire.

 •When presented with option of buying an iPad mini, 40% of those who had said planned to buy an iPad changed their minds and opted for the mini.

 •12% said they planned to buy a Google (GOOG) Nexus and 21% a Microsoft (MSFT) Surface.
