Phones 4u carried out research on tablets in October through its Ubar portal. It found that 65% of people would consider purchasing a tablet within the next 10 months and more than 90% of people would want to use a tablet for browsing the internet and social networking.
Through uBar Phones 4u asked 566 people equally split between men and women.
Phones 4u marketing director Russell Braterman said: ‘Tablet devices are an exciting development out of the mobile phone market. Just as our customers love to have the latest handsets, tablets will be high on must-have Xmas present lists this year. Phones 4u will be offering devices on a range of great value package options, allowing our customers to buy presents for loved ones (or themselves) in the way that they prefer and best meets their needs.’
