Consumer Poll Shows Owners Prefer iPad for Reading

Cooper Murphy Webb, a copywriting agency, just released results of a telephone survey of 1034 iPad owners in the UK. The poll shows these owners prefer the iPad for reading newspapers, magazines and books. Other findings indicate the iPad is used mostly at home, is popular as a gaming device, but falls behind laptop and desktop computers when it comes to Internet browsing.
