i-Pad Not Exciting Brits

Despite all the hoopla in San Francisco last week with Steve Jobs’ unveiling of Apple’s tablet, a survey published in the Daily Telegraph tomorrow shows the British public is not impressed and a majority have no intention to buy. The biggest hurdle seems to be the cost for having a 3G version — respondents didn’t see the need to have a tablet they can walk around with and use out of range of an internet wireless connection or Hotspot.

The resistance also seems to be prompted by i-Pad’s middle position — neither a proper computer with a seriously functioning keyboard nor a convenient phone. As I blogged before — Apple should have gone for a netbook.
