Not surprising at all, in fact. (Score: 0) by Anonymous Coward on 2014-09-01 23:07 (#2RZB) It was always obvious that tablets were a fad device. Apple only sold so many of them because Apple isn't selling electronic devices, they're selling religion. And people buying iPads weren't buying them because they were tablets, they were buying them out of a sense of religious duty. Everybody else, however, had no need for them. That's why no other vendor has had success selling tablets. They're a device that nobody really wants. Re: Not surprising at all, in fact.

A lot of people do buy apple products just because they think it's cool, hip, the best, or that there is no other choice (even though the educated know there are good alternatives). I've been very happy with my Android tablet. It doesn't do everything, but I still find it useful, and it's not an apple product.
