thanks for episode #8 of the Above Avalon podcast (blog article here). I really enjoy the show, and this episode in particular I would like to add some comments to. It’s really a follow-up to my previous article about the iPad.
Here on the west coast of Denmark, I have been surprised to see a lot of iPad Airs 2. The model I usually see is the silver 64gb with 4G, which has surprised me as this is not an inexpensive model. The other one I see a lot is the iPad 2 32Gb wifi model. Apart from that I see very little of the others, and remarkably, I haven’t seen anyone actually owning the current generation iPad Mini.
The fact that the iPad Air 2 is so strong has surprised me, as it didn’t seem like such a big deal. The reason I’ve concluded is that a lot of people are upgrading from the iPad 2, which I think must have been a great success seeing how many are out there. But also, about 1/3 of the people I’ve spoken to who got an iPad Air 2 were new to the iPad.
So I’m more optimistic on the numbers. Yes, the west coast of Denmark probably isn’t very representative of Apples market, but it’s the data point I see, and I thought I should share it with you.
