I’m back to beat on that dead Android tablet horse.
This is the important line:
As the novelty of the device wears off and as the honeymoon phase comes to an end, people simply don’t use it as much as they used to.
That’s exactly what happened with the Kindle Fire. People bought it, played with it for a while, and then put it aside for their iPad.
I don’t think that’s going to happen with the iPad Mini.
Anyone can brag they sold “X” number of a thing. But after selling it, are the buyers using and liking it? That’s the measure of true success.
