In another survey, ChangeWave asked 3,174 potential customers if they plan to buy iPads. Of that group, 7% of respondents said they are "very likely" to buy an iPad. Another 13 percent are "somewhat likely." That first number has risen since ChangeWave started conducting these surveys.
As word-of-mouth and actual hands-on time with these things spreads, those numbers will continue to climb. My own un-scientific experience is that everyone who spends 10-15 minutes tapping around becomes instantly smitten. Heck, even my kid sees the potential, and he doesn't work for a research firm.
