Your Next Tablet Purchase Is ...
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Surprise. Did you think it would be anything other than the Apple(AAPL) iPad?
TheStreet polled readers on what their next tablet purchase would be, and an overwhelming majority, 69.88% or 608 people, said they would buy an iPad.
This comes as Apple is expected to launch the next version of its popular tablet, the iPad 3, next month.
On a recent Barnes & Noble conference call, CEO William Lynch said he had heard about some "quality issues with our biggest competitor" on its new product, with 15% to 25% return rates. Many presumed this to be the Kindle Fire. Amazon didn't return a request for comment on the issue.
Almost 7% of readers said they would buy another brand not mentioned in the poll, while just 3.56% of the 870 people who voted said they didn't want a tablet at all.
