iPad Unsurprisingly Registering Most Popular With Affluent Young Adults Already Owning Apple Products

«The most interested potential iPad customers see it primarily as a music device, or for its internet access capabilities,» said Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis at NPD. «Considering what people are planning to use the iPad for, it’s not hard to understand why people who have these capabilities on other devices, such as the iPod Touch or a notebook/netbook, may not want to spend $500 or more on a similar device. This points to the need for Apple to close the content deals that focus the iPad on what is likely to be its best long-range value proposition around high quality media consumption.»

iPad Camera Connection Kit now on Apple Store, ships late April $29

The iPad Camera Connection Kits have finally hit the Apple Store and show a shipping time of Late April. On this, we’re still wondering is if you’ll be able to use these things as storage for videos and music as well.

He says with the iPad there’s no longer a strict landscape limitation for video. «Maybe you want your vid to appear full screen in portrait mode? Maybe you need a long, tall video banner-ad on the side of a digital magazine page? I think we’re going to start seeing a lot more vertically shot video soon,» Jesse wrote on his website.
