Results of the Lotusphere 2011 Tablet Survey

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond, there were 78 responses when I closed the poll, I can’t say the results are surprising, with iPad representing the majority of Tablets, for those who responded yes.

Lotusphere 2011 Tablet Survey Results


I wonder what the “other” tablets are, HP Slate? Maybe a respondant from RIM who has a Playbook?

If you are not bringing one is it because of cost? Waiting for the new Android tablets to ship with Android 3.0? Waiting for iPad2? Or do you think the Tablet market is a passing fad?  Kathy also asked a really good question in a comment on the poll, if you are bringing a tablet is it in addition to or instead of a laptop?  Drop a comment with an answer to any of these questions.

    Curious to know the PDA/cell phone breakdown for attendees as well. (Droid vs. iPhone vs. Blackberry vs. Windows phone vs. other) (Put me down for Droid!)

    No tablet for me. I’d have to buy it myself and I’d rather spend the money on other toys at the moment. I’ll just have my personal BB Bold 9000.

    I am waiting till the last minute to see what is available. I might break down and buy one a few days before. I don’t want to be hauling around a laptop all the time.

    I have to bring a laptop for work so the iPad would be extra kit to lug around. So far I have managed to keep work stuff off the iPad.

    I’ll have my iPad and I’ll be dragging along my 11″ MacBook Air in case there’s problems back at base. The combination weighs less and takes less room than my old laptop and the iPad will easily last the whole day without having to find a charge point.

    IF there were 78 responses, and 3% were other — I personally make up half of the Other category. I’d planned to show up with a new HP Slate 500 (which is a windows 7 slate with multi-touch and pen input).

    Sadly, HP is so back ordered that I can’t get one. Maybe ASUS will have theirs out in time.

    See, I want a full OS stack on a tablet. If I can’t get it this year, I just use a cheap netbook (I kind of like the HP one with the chicklet keyboard).
