Last week we asked you about data connection in tablets, and wondered whether you had it and used it on your own tablet. According to the poll, the vast majority of the voters think Wi-Fi is more than enough for a tablet, and either don’t have or rarely use their 3G connection.
Out of 278 voters, 58% have Wi-Fi only tablets, 7% have 3G tablets, but rarely use the 3G functionality, 10% have 3G tablets a use the connection all the time, 18% don’t own a tablet, but if they did, it would be Wi-Fi only, and 7% don’t own a tablet, but if they did it would have 3G.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
It’s quite surprising to see that only 17% of the voters think 3G is useful for tablets. This might be due to the ease with which one can get a data connection anywhere simply using one’s phone. In this case, as many readers stated in the comments, getting a 3G tablet becomes obsolete.
This week’s poll question is: Will You Rush Out To Buy The iPad 3?
As you probably already know, the new iPad 3 is due to arrive sometime in March, probably sooner than later. As customary with Apple, no one knows for sure what the iPad 3 has in store for us, but one thing’s for sure: it’s going to be awesome. It’s been only 2 years since the original iPad came into our lives, and only a year since the release of the iPad 2. Most iPad enthusiasts already own an iPad, and others might own a different tablet. The iPad 3 sure looks exciting, but there’s probably going to be an even better one next year. So where do you stand? Will you rush out to get the new iPad 3?
What do you think makes the iPad 3 so exciting? Will you go out and buy it even though you already own an older model? Will owning an older model prevent you from trying out this one? Tell us in the comments!
