Unfortunately for Apple, the number if respondents saying they had heard about the tablet but were not interested in buying one, doubled from 25% before the announcement to over 50% following the announcement.
What is interesting about this, is Retrevo did a survey last October:
In this survey, the price point was $700...Apple is $200 below that price, and it really didn't help at all.
Note also that long battery life was supposedly the big feature people wanted, and a long term contract was the big feature no one wanted. Apple met both of those requirements. Looks like they missed on "Solar recharging" though
Interesting numbers-I think the initial interest number was abnormally high, but we'll see in a couple months how popular it turns out to be.
