What are you using your iPad for?

Resolve Market Research has just completed a comprehensive online study that looks at how the iPad is being used, how the iPad is impacting other technology devices like e-readers, portable gaming consoles and netbooks and how users perceive the iPad both before and after owning the device.

The iPad has primarily been positioned as a device to browse the web, watch video and read content so the study has some interesting, and in some cases surprising, results.

One of the most surprising parts of Resolve’s study, was that 37% of respondents who owned or were planning to own an iPad said that it would be their first Apple product.

The study also revealed that 55% of iPad owners or would-be owners see the device as a very expensive toy, or luxury item rather than a necessity.

As has been the way with the mobile phone, MP3 player and laptops, it is looking like tablet devices will also become must-have rather than luxury items.
