And that’s why big retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are projecting that the iPad will be the “hot, must-have gadget” of Christmas 2010.
Best Buy has reported an impressive 61% spike in quarterly profit thanks to sales of smartphones and iPad-like devices. Best Buy, Target, and Walmart all plan to have a plethora of iPads in stock for the holiday season. With amazing sales already, it’s not very surprising that iPads and iPad accessories will be the big hit of the holiday season!
Personally, though, I’m not too interested in the iPad. Me + Touchscreen devices = disaster. I haven’t quite gotten used to it. It will probably be a few years for me before I even get a phone with touchscreen capabilities, and even then all my friends will think it’s the sign of the apocalypse. So no iPad for me.
What about you guys? Are you hoping for an iPad this Christmas?
On a separate, Christmas-y note, would you be interested if I created a “2010 Holiday Geek Guide”?
