Apple believes that the iPad has already left its mark on most of the Fortune 100 companies. This is because, based on reports, they believe that most of these companies are looking out for its products and how to apply them within their business world. The chief operating officer Tim Cook has been reported to have pointing out that the early adoption of iPad into the corporate world was indeed a spectacular event.
The impact of the iPad in the business world was deeper than anticipated. About 50% of Fortune 100 companies and 30% of Fortune 500 companies were either using or considering to use this product. It has been observed that the iPad does not show the typical early adopter curve. Most of the Apple products begin slowly and then gradually establish themselves in the market, but iPad went far beyond this in its initial stages itself according to professionals and those working in apple mac repair companies.
When the executives over at Apple were asked about their subsequent threats from their competitors, they revealed that they had no fear and iPad would definitely survive the competition with the low and cheap iPad sold in the market. They were sure that people would be more than willing to use a 3G phone than a product that had been discounted and average in perception. Moreover, the customers were not expecting something far and beyond their regular handsets. The CEO, however, did not reveal the iPad had more affinity towards the Wi-Fi or the 3G models but he revealed that the price of the iPad (around $640) leaned more towards the 32GB WI-Fi as well as the 16GB 3D editions available in the market.
The Apple iPad is a tough competitor for its rivals like Android. The only potential rival is the RIM, which is planning to introduce the Blackberry tablet soon enough. Apple is safe till the introduction of Cisco Cius in 2011.
