Recently, Gene Munster's team ran a survey of 65 consumers that don't currently own a tablet computer. They were shown the iOS iPad 3G and Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab. They were asked which one they preferrer, and what they thought the tablet was worth (The Price Is Wrong, B#$ch!).
In the preferred tablet category, the iPad was preferred 17 to 3...
The pereceved value of the iPad 3G was $417 or $212 less than the suggested retail price, more that one-third less than Apple is charging.
But as for the Galaxy Tab, the perceived value was $283...which is less than half the $600 "asking price"
Maybe we should let these consumers try out a couple of apps and see what they think the value of the App Store items are....I bet they are aren't penny pinchin as much.
