Analysts say consumers are realizing tablets aren’t as useful for some tasks, and they’re also waiting longer to buy new models. Apple CEO Tim Cook said Monday that some potential iPad users are opting instead for the company’s new lightweight MacBook computers, or even the newer iPhone models that have larger screens.
But Cook said he sees a future for the iPad in business settings, where workers can use specialized iPad apps created by IBM and other commercial software developers. ”I believe the iPad is an extremely good business over the long term,” Cook said. ”Precisely when it begins to grow again, I wouldn’t want to predict. But I strongly believe that it will.”
