iPad Competitors Poised to Fail

Forrester:

Competing tablets to the iPad are poised to fail, which is why we’re forecasting that Apple will have at least 80% share of the US consumer tablet market in 2011.

One key point: the human factor at Apple Stores makes a big difference. Enter any Apple Store and you’ll see a bunch of people playing with iPads, MacBooks, iPhones, etc. Got a question? An Apple employee or two is nearby. Enter any Verizon store and you’ll see a bunch of people waiting too long for someone to take care of their problems. Same goes for AT&T. Where do you go to play with and buy a Motorola Xoom? Not somewhere I’d want to go.
