It looks like research on this question is just getting going and the
marketing researchers are in the forefront. In my admittedly quick search
there was nothing on use in research, so the conversation here might
constitute the first foray into that area!
A Mashable summary of a Resolve Market Research study on iPad use (text of
the study itself is ~$1700 it looks like, yikes!):
Yahoo Research has found more men than women are using it-and also looked
at some other demographic factors. Although it looks like they were only
looking at how people were using the iPad to use their products, which
could inherently bias their results if more men than women use Yahoo.
comScore has looked into how people intended to use it:
And other scattered stuff too on its use in gaming, by doctors, how it
might be used, and use in other professions, etc.
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
